CANON CITY — A family from Oklahoma were among visitors getting a first glimpse of the Royal Gorge Bridge, which reopened Saturday for the first time since a June 11 fire.

“This is my first time to Colorado and it is wonderful. It is all new to us and exciting to be able to go to the bridge,” said Tana Ganster, who along with husband, Brian, and children Callie, 6, and Dobby, 7, braved chilly temperatures to take a bus tour across one of the world’s highest suspension bridges.

“I am afraid of heights but I am excited,” Tana Ganster said.

Other states represented Saturday were Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Iowa and Colorado.

“We had 150 people here right off the bat. We had three buses full,” said Peggy Gair, bridge spokeswoman.
