  1. Thanks! There are several in the West that are similar — one on Hwy 1 near Big Sur and one near Santa Barbara come to mind immediately, and I believe there are others on the Coast in Northern California and Oreton. They are beautiful structures!

      1. I wouldn’t be at all surprised! They were probably all built in the 1920’s (although the one near Santa Barbara may be newer than that), and were part of some Federal (CCC, or WPA) project, or something similar.Amazing structures!

  2. Great photos Marilyn. He looks like a beautiful cat. I love old bridges although they make me a bit nervous going over them. I have a similar bridge only it is from New Zealand. You have to marvel at our forebears. The country in yours looks as tough as the country in mine and they managed to get the equipment there and build it. A feat in my eyes.

    1. He was my best friend’s cat. I believe he is still around, though he is old and not doing well anymore. The pity of our pets. They never live long enough.

      I have not been able to prove who built these beauties. I’m betting there was one designer and probably, the first group that went up in the 1930 under FDR were all very similar — and all quite extraordinary! I still can’t figure out how they did it. Cranes, I suppose? And REALLY BIG DRILLS!
