Old Iron Truss Bridges

Does anyone like the old iron truss bridges? I did a 207 mile dual sport ride with a buddy and we rode out to this bridge that was built in 1905. Not a single guard rail on it. It is sort of the best of both worlds for me, the bridges are a hobby and I get to ride out to most of them. I have started a new blog and am posting info about the ones in the area where I live.

I shot a bridge that was built in 1906 (1 year later than this one) and although it had guard rails on it, it actually had less bracing than this one.

A couple I have taken on my local adventures:

Abandoned bridge over Bear Creek in Alabama somewhere





At some OHV area I found in Alabama one weekend:

There are several of these along Bear Creek. I have found most of them but a few are still out of reach so far. From what I can gather they were all built in the 1920's...some even earlier. I just can't figure out what the concrete structure is next to the one above. That was the only one I have found that has that structure beside the bridge....
