New River Bridge       Back to Vacations  /  Back Home

This is the bridge over the New River in West Virginia, highway US 19.  The longest span bridge in the western hemisphere, the sign says.  This is the bridge that's on the back of the West Virginia quarter.

This shot was taken from one of the upper overlooks.  You can go all the way down to get the glamour shot you see on the quarter, but not with these knees.  Looked to be about a quarter mile of stair steps.
