    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.

    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.

    Weird....

    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:

    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:

    Phil,
    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!

    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
