Bakers Bridge In Colorado

Are you adventurous? Or maybe just on the look for new fun things to do around Colorado? Our state has no shortage of things to do, especially when it comes to doing stuff outdoors. Colorado has a plethora of winter and colder weather activities that I personally have zero interest in, but we have plenty of fun warmer summer weather stuff to do too.. Like jumping off of a bridge into the water below. Ever seen this fun that used to take place at Bakers Bridge?

Bakers Bridge is in Durango, Colorado, and is famous to local thrill-seekers all over Colorado and beyond. Not only did people take the big jump off of the bridge but many used it to just lay out in the sun and soak in some of that Colorado sunshine as well.

The water looks super inviting, doesn't it? Wish we could have done in!

This area that's just about 15 minutes from Durango is about as gorgeous as it comes.

Here's a view and some tips from the local news station for those who visited and made the jump when it was open to the public.

I'm not much of a "heights" guy as it is so you're not likely to ever see me cliff, or bridge diving, but who knows. Maybe someday I wake up and decide to be brave and find something cool like this. In the meantime, we’ll just remember how cool this place was when it was open to the public. Speaking of Colorado adventures..

Facts You May or May Not Know About Colorado's Royal Gorge Bridge

Constructed in 1929, by Lon Piper of San Antonio, Texas, and the president of the Royal Gorge Bridge and Amusement Company as a tourist attraction. The bridge spans the 1,250 feet deep Royal Gorge carved by the Arkansas River, resting 955 feet above the rushing whitewater.

While the main attraction of the area is the massive bridge, the "amusement park" also features rides for kids, a zipline across the gorge, gondola rides, and of course, walking across the bridge. Automobiles can drive across the bridge before the attractions are opened or after they are closed.
