Royal gorge trip

Our guide was amazing. His name was Zulu. He was fun and new all the history of the gorge. This was my second time. We will be back next year and I want Zulu to be our guide again. John was our photographer And he got some amazing pictures for us. I bought the package.

I was really scared but Joaquin really calmed me down with his knowledge and confidence. He was an awesome guide. This adventure was probably the most fun thing I’ve ever done. So glad I didn’t chicken out. All the workers take their job very seriously and that was comforting. A lot could go wrong but these people know what they are doing. The scenery was breathtaking. I would definitely do this again if I ever pass this way again. Thanks Joaquin for keeping us safe.
