    Could be a scary ride: Hope that this isn't earthquake country!


    The Millau viaduct is part of the new E11 expressway connecting Paris abd Barcelona and features
    the highest bridge piers ever constructed. The tallest is 240 meters (787 feet) high and the
    overall height will be an impressive 336 meters (1102 feet), making this the highest bridge in the world.


    Slide the picture to the right/left ... to see the whole bridge!

    What a view 787 feet high!
