Two weeks ago, I retired from my job. As soon as things settled down a little bit, we took a road trip. We drove to West Virginia first, and, early one morning in Fayetteville, WV, I took the following photo which is my submission to this week’s photo challenge.

New River Gorge Bridge

New River Gorge Bridge

This happened to be the day when severe snow storms fell in the Northeast. The sky was bleak to say the least, but snow had not yet fallen where we were. The New River Gorge bridge stood as strong as ever. From 1977 to 2003, this steel single-span arch bridge had the longest span in the world at 1,699 ft or 518 m. The total length of the bridge is 3,030 ft or 924 m.
