Royal Gorge Bridge & Park entrance

 

Royal Gorge Bridge是美國最壯觀景點之一,也是目前世界上最高的吊橋(Suspension Bridge),此項工程常被媲美於巴黎艾菲爾鐵塔和紐約帝國大廈的偉大工程。 這座吊橋橫越一壯觀的峽谷, 從谷底的阿肯色河(Arkansas River)至吊橋高1053英尺(321公尺)。這座吊橋於1929年6月5日 開始興建,於同年11月完工,花費美金350,000.元(約等於現值2000萬美金),不僅工程只花了6個月的時間,更令人敬佩的是在整個興建過程中,沒有發生任何人員傷亡或任何的意外事件。在此你可以搭乘斜坡式火車(Incline Railway)到谷底,也可以搭乘Trolley通過大橋遊遍各景點,或是搭乘纜車(Aerial Tram)橫越峽谷;當然不要忘掉走上吊橋感受一下。該吊橋長: 1,260 feet (384 meters)、寬: 18 feet (5 meters) 可通行大巴士及一般車輛。

Water Clock門口的時鐘很特別, 是用水力來運作, 有年、月、日和時間。
