Day 2 / 104 - Bridge Walk

On Father's Day my children and husband took the guided walking tour on the catwalk across the New River Bridge, a mere 851 feet above the New River.

The Bridge was constructed during the mid to late '70s and cost 37 million dollars to complete.  It is the largest single span steel arch in the western hemisphere, and the highest vehicle carrying bridge in the United States.  The tour across the 3030 foot length catwalk takes about 2 hours, plenty of time to view the Gorge and the massive steel features and all the very bolts and beams of the bridge.

They loved it and can't wait to return to do it again !!
