The driving here, is very steep and jaw clenching, but I was able to manage it. I did not drive to the top though, to walk the mile high swinging bridge, instead, we parked at the trail head and hiked up. It was only a .5 mile hike, but a lot of rocks and branches to climb over. This would have been a fine hike for me if I was in good condition, but I had to give in and let Nadia hold onto me on the way down.

The view is very nice from the bridge. There is also a little gift shop too.
We headed back down under the bridge to hike back to the car.

Next we went to park at the zoo and eat in the Museum. I love to eat here. Make sure you get a window seat, because there are humming birds flying all around.
We walked over to look at the animals. They have a couple of black bears, eagles, deer, cougars and some river otters.

It was now time to end our vacation. What a fun time we had. I was very proud of my sister. This was her first time getting outdoors and hiking. She did a great job, even though, she said many times she felt like she was gonna die. She is so silly.
Bye Bye to the cooler temps and back to 95 degrees.
