They are working on the span

Not sure what is going on here

Remember this truck

Driving into the gorge

Remember the truck?

You can't get the whole span

Still going down. Remember the truck?

Closer to the bottom. The same truck.

From the other side of the gorge and on the way up.

We spent the day at the new river gorge.

We drove along the gorge in the morning. We stopped at Hawks Nest State Park for breakfast with a view at the lodge. There is a Tram to the bottom of the gorge and a Jet Boat Ride (which operates every day but today). It is a sign - we must come back with the convertible one day.

In the afternoon we went to the New River Gorge Bridge. This is the longest arch span in the western hemisphere. We took a very steep and very winding road that goes into the gorge under the bridge. Many hairpin turns and great views. There is way too much to do in one day. Again a sign to come back with the convertible.

Many many pictures.

We go to Fort Boonesboro State Park in Tenn tomorrow. No idea but probably no wifi. Will add more when we can.

Hope you are all having a great summer.
