Royal Gorge impacted

The Royal Gorge tram cable has fallen into the river at the gorge. The bridge is ok but multiple buildings there have burnt. CRAZY STUFF.

Unfortunate, I lived in Alma Co for 20 years and feel for my brethren down south. Colorado is in a bad way these days with beetle kill and dry conditions. I have many great friends there and my fingers are crossed.

Durring the Haymen fire I was on top of Mt.Bross watching the smoke rise like a nuke had gone off, the next day the national guard came and shut down our nat. forest with ar-15s and hummers. I hope 2013 is a better year.

If the report of the cable in the river is correct, the recovery operation is bound to dump rock into the canyon.

The bad news is the river will be closed for awhile. The good news is next year there could be some new rapids!

When is the wire going to be out? I it landed on the memorial headstone. That cable needs some heavy equipment to come out.

I didn't see anything that talked to the cable in the river being the actual tram cable, but its too bad and will require cleanup either way. My thoughts to those effected by all of our wildfires right now.
