"Oh! the power that piled these wonders As the mountains took their stations; As a great red belt rose upward in a glittering zone of fire."--Ferguson.
The crowning wonder of Colorado is the world-famed Royal Gorge. Its rock piled crags tower above the river at this point 2,600 feet. The narrow and broad gauge railroad running through the canyon is one of the greatest pieces of railroad engineering ever accomplished.
Colorado abounds in wonders; next is the noted Loop.
