Ruinaulta Canyon – Rhine River

Our second day traveling the Rhine River started out drizzly and chilly.  Our cyling guide indicated we would still be traveling downhill for the most part with some uphill climbs interspersed.

As we cycled on curvy roads above the Ruinaulta Gorge, road signs warned of rock falls. I was more afraid of traveling off road down the cliff-side. The views were striking but I needed to stop and get off my bike to look.  Prior to crossing the bridge pictured below we were traveling quickly down the mountain road and came across a construction crew cleaning up a previous rock slide and limiting the road to one lane. I was thankful for good brakes!
