you won't catch me driving on this one:crazy:
That one doesn't look like it would be very sturdy?oooh:
I think I woud have to take the small bridge behind that one.
thats impressive I would take that bridge we visited the royal goarge last year in colarado last year and it is a neat bridge with a wood deck and it really clickedy clanks and sways when you drive over it
I'd love to drive across that bridge. but looks like an alqueda (sp?) terrorist target though and that would be one hellva fall! Quite an amazing feat though.
here's a link to the royal gorge bridge that we visited in colorado its in canyon city colorado
i work on railroad bridges and the highest one has been 301 feet so i would love to be up on that bridge
Phil, how did you stumble upon that link?
The reason I ask is that I visit that site the link came from, daily. I grew up in Cook MN which is city of about 500 people.
Phil,thats awesome.Thanks for sharing!!!
Phil, I've saw that link before and that bridge is really something.
It uses the same type superstructure as the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa, FL.
Trevor, We spent a week in the Canyon, CO area in 1991. Some beautiful country. Also drove across the bridge to nowhere. I guess you rode the tram across the gorge and the slant railroad to the bottom... quite an experience! I was taking video back then and don't have any photos.
I do have one of the bridge over the Rio Grande Gorge near Tacos, NM. It is a bridge to somewhere. :smile2:
I got dizzy just looking at the picture. lol. It is "purty" though.
My first thoughts were how to go about fishing off of it.Need I say more?peewee-williams
Me either Phil. I don't know what's on the other side but what ever it is, er ah I don't need it : )
Holy cow, now that's a tall bridge. I think it'd be neat to cross that . Be even neater if they had a pull off that you could gaze over the ecge.:tounge_out:
That is one beautiful piece of architecture! One that I will NEVER see up close... LOL... I am terrified of heights...I would have to be a passenger & drugged to unconsciousness to get over something even a 1/8 as tall as that!
You would need a looooooooooooong net.:big_smile:
At 40 I was comfortable walking tree limbs or 2 inch steel at any hight.I have worked steel and climbed anything with no fear whatsoever until I started to loose my balance and fall.As my body lost it's control and ability to stay erect,I started to get this horrible fear of all heights.I always thought it was some type of phobia.I now wonder if it is your body's way of telling you that you are not phys icily capable of surviving if you climb or expose yourself to a potential fall.It is a weird horrible feeling that I never dreamed of till it happened to me.peewee-williams
i would drive accross that 1, while i was stationed in Korea, there was a bridge over ther that was roughly between 900 and1100 feet in the air...... crazy, man, it took me some time b4 i walked accross it...............
Looks like you would need a full tank of gas to cross that bridge. nice pic Phil.
