Saturday

We had a crowd for breakfast.



After breakfast we stood around in the parking lot sweltering and wasting the cool part of the day until a few of us finally just went on; that caused a sandy crack or two but WTF, lets make a move already. Mark O wanted to go here for a tag...





This really is a big bridge, couldn't fit it all in one shot (and I can't find my stitching software).

Guess what? There's a way to get up on the roadbed...



If you look toward the end of the bridge, you can see what looks like a cut through the trees going off to the right. That's where the track goes. What we are all standing on in the pic above is a 4-wheeler trail running alongside the tracks. No point in turning around then, is there? It was only about a mile from the far end of the bridge to the first chance we had to get down to the main road. Be advised, the Wee is not the best bike for riding on railroad ballast, especially with a wuss like me at the controls.


Views from the top of the bridge.





I leaned out over the edge once, made me queasy.

We may have to wait until Ricky-Bobby can see the photo.
The color scheme of the building and chair should be a hint.

Those guys were a hoot! Decided my chain and cash on hand were a little too worn to head west.
I did ride over to see the New River bridge among other things. Got in yesterday around 3 PM, little over 2200 miles.
