It's not over the royal gorge. It's over reaches of the river between Salida and Parkdale, with most of it over the parkdale reach (5.9 total river miles under the cloth).
I'm mostly nuetral to this whole thing. Main disadvantage I see is the massive clusterf*ck that area is going to be during construction and display. Not only will traffic suck, but all of the New Yorker tourists will gape at it, then want to go rafting under it and gape some more, which of course leads to the attendent river carnage. At least that should generate some entertainment for us. I may go down there during the display just to gape at the gapers.
It'll be good to get it over with so we don't have to read about it on the buzz anymore...
