Thanks Huell Toast.

Lol thanks Cragman I take that as a high compliment. I love Huell Howser. When I was a teenager he was the young 'sports guy' on our local news station in Nashville. Ironically Pat Sajack of Wheel of Fortune was the weather guy on the competing station. Just look at em both now!

You mean? You mean I can WALK???

ACROSS THAT BRIDGE????!!!!!!!!

Atlanterhavsveien on the coast of Norway, connecting Kristiansund and Molde, is pretty amazing. Hopping from island to skerry to island for 8 km, more in the ocean than on land. Bridges, tunnels and other neat stuff.

Lots of these kind of private bridges in the hills. Some are maintained, this one isn't. Good idea to look under before proceeding.

The Calatrava Sundial footbridge in Redding is really beautiful, but hotter than f*#k half the year with its glass walkway. My pics of it don't do it justice.

Swinging railroad bridge over the Swinomish Channel ( that's salt water ).



A few minutes after this shot was taken, the kite and camera crash-landed in the water - about halfway between the bridge and the barge - when the kite fell apart. The camera is fine ( Pentax Optio W80 ) with the dunking, but everything else electric ( radio receiver, 3 servos, and a battery ) was shot. I always wondered what would happen if I crashed in the water.

I remember when they built this bridge. It's spectacular, but I sure miss the drive from San Diego to Idlywild on old Highway 395.

Yeah bvb I drove down past Temecula last summer during a fricking heat wave to your San Diego bouldering strong hold under that bridge, so cool looking. I also got off and did the old 395 bit for ways too, old school.

I LOVE the new Benecia bridge but loved the old carcass too.

Bridges are one of the highest expressions of a civilization, right up there with language and culture (seriously)

2,000 years old. Still in use. Roman bridge, northern Spain

2000 years and working it is a mark of civilization

DMT That looks like the old RR Bridge near Cosumnes River Preserve.

Old gas pipeline bridge with the pipe removed, railroad bridge in the background, you nailed it.

Its the Mokelumne at that point however. After the confluence (or maybe just before?)

You can see the old 'hoops' that secured the pipe. Its a great challenge to get someone to walk across it, its unnerving.

It's quite simply remarkable. . . and Turtle Bay Exploration Park is really something. . . it's almost as if it put little Redding, CA on the map.
