The Silver Bridge Collapse
I visted Point Pleasant, WV last Summer with my brother and a friend. We met in Wellsburg, WV and followed the Ohio River most of the way, putting in about 350 miles of saddle-time.
I have been fascinated with the Silver Bridge Collapse ever since parts the movie "The Mothman Prophecies" were filmed in my home county of Washington, PA. The movie was based on the legend of Point Pleasant's "Mothman". A key part of the movie involved a bridge collapse similar to the tragic event that occurred that fateful night back in December 1967.
Here are a few more shots from our Point Pleasant trip:
