The Kinzua Bridge has been one of my favorite places to visit for as long as I can remember. I have memories of little me being frightened of falling through the trestles.
On July 21, 2003, a tornado made its way through the valley and the bridge came tumbling down. It was built in 1882, crossing Kinzua Creek in McKean County, Pennsylvania.
A wild beard appears!
I stuck my phone against one of the binoculars set up at the viewing platforms.
There is a hiking trail which leads down into the valley along the bridge and its remains.
A view of the creek and valley from the end of the remaining bridge.
In the center of the platform at the end of the bridge, there is a thick glass window below. This is the view. I'm glad my fear of heights faded away long ago.
I don't like to see defacement like this, but I suppose it's natural to say, "I was here."
Bridge silhouette. I like silhouettes.
You can easily make out the window I mentioned earlier. If I recall correctly, the height there is 225 feet.
Big bridge, little bridge.
