These Bridges Will Make You Appreciate Solid Ground Like Never Before

Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado

Constructed in 1929, this antique bridge stretches 955 feet above the Arkansas River and provides an astonishing view of what seems to be an abysmal valley. It’s considered the highest bridge in the United States and was the highest in the world until 2001 when it was surpassed by the Liuguanghe in China.

Until its renovation in 1982, this bridge had no stabilizing wind cables, causing quite a fright for those moved by the violent air. It’s a lot safer nowadays, but with a deep gorge underneath and sharp, rocky terrain all around, we won’t blame you if you’re not quite up for it.
