Fuzzy started the meme off with a picture she took of the Bixby Creek Bridge just south of Monterey on California Hwy 1. A gorgeous picture in a wonderful setting. I bet that was a great ride.
Since I am completely addicted to taking pictures, and I also happen to like taking pictures during my motorcycle rides, of course I'd want to join in. You can play, too. I'll tell you how in a minute. But first, here are my bridge pics for the meme.
This photo was taken in late September of 2007. Hubby and I took a week off of work and rode down to the Deal's Gap area south of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Motorcycle vacations aren't usually about the destination. They're all about the ride. So we almost never take the direct route anywhere.
We have a thing for national parks, too. When I saw that the New River Gorge was actually designated as a National River AND that there's a really cool bridge there, I just HAD to add it to the return leg of our journey. Check out the New River Gorge National River web site for more information.

The New River Gorge Bridge is 876 feet above the river. The bridge is 3,030 feet long with a 1,700-foot arch. It's an impressive site. It would've been more impressive with nice, blue skies as a backdrop. But that was not to be.
It was also interesting to see the old bridge and drive the original route down one side of the gorge, across the old bridge, and up the other side. This is one of my favorite bridge pictures. It was the first image that popped to mind when Fuzzy mentioned bridge pics.

The New River Gorge area is FABULOUS for motorcycle rides. We actually spent some time in the area this past October. More on that one day. For now, I have to tell you how to join the meme.
