Thanks for including the second shot. It gives an additional perspective that makes one pause in deciding whether or not to ride this son of a gun.

It looks just like I remember it. I was there about 30 years ago. Although I didn't ride the tram, I got several pictures of it. There was a one-lane suspension bridge next to it that was billed as the "World's Highest Suspension Bridge". I drove across it and that was quite an experience.

Selvin and Cal, Hi, Thank you for your comments. The tram was lots of fun and the scenery was amazing.

The suspension bridge was awesome, we walked across it.The construction was started on June 5th of 1929 and was completed by November 1929. Length: 1, 260 feet, Width: 18 feet.
