I live in the arid country of southern Arizona. We have bridges, but the go over washes, which are dry river beds that only have water during monsoon season. They are boring flat bridges, grey-brown in color to match the desert.
Seriously,how cool is this!?!? Ok, there are no cool bridges like this anywhere in Arizona.
Official bridge geek here.
I believe bridges are forms of art.
The geek in me wonders how engineers design these so they will continue to stand during hurricane winds. It’s math – physics, yes but it is fascinating.
Some are so elegant and graceful you feel grateful to have the opportunity to use them.
You can see the rain drops on the windshield and the Tennessee sign on the cool bridge spanning the river, and the lights of the city in the distance.
Big river, pretty lights.
And then, in Mississippi (the state) we ran into this awesomeness.
Very cool at night too.
