Additional Details:
The Royal Gorge, the mother of the Arkansas River, is a gigantic slit or canal in the Rocky Mountains, cut from the summits of the lofty peaks to the very foundation stones. At the bottom flows the river and is built the D.& R. G. Railroad, an engineering feat looked upon as well-nigh impossible. A span wide in places, and rising 3,000 feet perpendicular to the clouds, it presents miles of scenery equaled in few places on the globe. The swinging bridge is suspended from immense steel supports buried in the granite walls on either side
