My entry for this challenge are the following photos taken two weeks ago of the New River Gorge bridge and the New River itself in West Virginia. The bridge is one of the longest single-span steel arch bridges in the world.

The New River is actually the third oldest river in the world, and is estimated to be between 260 and 325 million years old. The early European settlers of the area did not know that it existed and when they found Β it in 1671, they named it New River.
