This one is in AZ. at Roosevelt Lake west of Phoenix. Used to ride out to it and the dam by it all the time.

Looks nice.
The Arizona life has been starting to grow on me slowly. I've been a california person all my life, but AZ with its lakes and easy living has started to catch onto me.

I wonder how long these turn of the century steel bridges can hang on, the stone ones seem to last forever.

We were watching the series on The men that built America , I think it was called , they had one featuring Andrew Carnegie and how he was responsible for building the first big steel bridge in 1874 that crosses the Mississippi at St. Louis .

It is still in operation carrying 4 lanes of traffic and 2 sets of rails, I think I need to go see it. :)

Here is another one located in Morris IL over the I&C canal, the pic is grainy because it was taken at dusk through a 6 year old phone :blush:

Thanks for sharing, all. Those are some really nice photos! :)

I just got back from a little 60 mile jaunt, myself. Been off two wheels for about a month now. Spent two weeks in China on business and two weeks around the house when I returned helping my wife back on her feet after some major surgery.

To be honest, it was way too hot to even be riding. So, I took it up into the mountains. Which made it a little cooler. I managed to stop and take a couple of photos while I was out. The ones below are up at High Point State Park, highest elevation in New Jersey. Sad to say, that's only 1,804 feet. Anyway, took the ol' '77 650C out today and had some fun with it.

Next time, I'll take some bridge photos. ;)

Thanks for posting all those shots very nice B) , I don't think you hit all 29 of them though :P

I hope your wife has a fast recovery KraZy, do they let you go up in that High Point Monument ? I'll bet it's a great view, thanks for the pics.

Thanks, JD. I'm sure the wife will be back to her pain in the ass self in short order. No problem there! :whistle:

The tower was closed for quite sometime for repairs, but I believe it was recently reopened. You can actually park right close to the monument and walk the perimeter. The view is truly spectacular from there. You can see where NJ, NY and PA come together. I love the Fall the best. Miles and miles of nothing but a sea of yellow, orange and red trees. For as far as the eye can see! I'm already on my way down the backside of the park in those photos, headed towards Port Jervis.

It's a very historic area. The Delaware River runs through it. There's a great river run ride that ends up at a place called the Crow's Nest. Beer and good food, where all the bikers meet! Of course the miles and miles of twisty river road are the main attraction. I've run about 25 miles of it and it never gets boring. Especially, the section below. All the Hayabusa's, Ninja's and other twisters meet there to challenge the river road.

Bluej, you make it this way hit me up, Parke county is covered bridge crazy with 31 of them and I'm just north of it and it's where we go to ride when given the chance.
The Narrows bridge is where Aaron and I took pictures.
