Way to go, Laurie! Love that place. Wish I'd have been paying attention this morning, but I'm glad you got the bird!!! Is that your back yard with the wood pile, lol?

Morning Phil!!

Loved the blizzard and Northern Light pictures. And how I remember walking across the trestles when I was a kid.

Very cool photos today.

In the 2004 photo, I noticed that there are several platforms that stick out on the left-hand side of the tracks. Are they there in case a train comes when someone is crossing over?

I really like the rushing water & leaves. That was my desktop for a while then I remember.

You really have to go back and read the comments from when this pic was originally posted.
It sure stirred up a hornets nest!

I for one loved the pic and thought it was great. I want to walk out there with Pete from Mud Lake some day!

And yes, it appears those platforms are for emergency safe haven on the bridge!
