Crappy pics (from an old video camera I used to use pre GoPro) of a Road/Rail bridge that no longer exists...South of Greymouth, West Coast, New Zealand.

On the North shore of the Longest bridge in the USA. At 23.87 miles, the Causeway crosses Lake Ponchatrain from New Orleans to Mandeville, LA

I'd name that one pucker bridge.

First because of the feeling you get if you should drop into those rails.

Second when looking at that oncoming traffic sitting there just waiting to eat you.

Try it in the wet - the rails are nice and slippery...

It was one of three I know of in the South Island and at least 2 of them are gone now (and I think the third as well). We have quite a few one lane bridges around the place (esp off the beaten track) - no issue as long as people have their wits about them and obey the signage.

My son actually took this pic of his 650. But what a great shot.

Apologies, that was my bad: It's Briceburg, not Briceland. D'oh!

It's here:

http://goo.gl/maps/xeiix

Right off 140 heading into Yosemite. Note that you can take a dirt road after this bridge quite a ways up the Merced. It deadends in a small footpath and the brave could prolly skirt the "Road Ends" sign and continue.

You can also cut up the hill in some switchbacks and go all dirt into Yosemite. Gets all twisty/junctions/confusing in there though....

Thanks! Got a waypoint, and next time I am in the neck of the woods you'll see a pic of my bike there. Granted that might take 2 or 3 years ....

Our text today is taken from the Book of Changes which refers often to crossing the great water as here -

64. Wei Chi / Before Completion

above LI THE CLINGING, FLAME
below K'AN THE ABYSMAL, WATER


Six in the third place means:
Before completion, attack brings misfortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.

57 F today, so I got out and took a little ride. The sky was cloudy, so therefore the light was challenging, but I'm still happy with this picture:
