The following series of pictures is of an old bridge my husband and I came upon last weekend while visiting Eagle Rock, VA. There used to be limestone quarries on either side of the highway, and the limestone was transported across the river via a tram system and then burned in the kilns in Eagle Rock to make lime.It is our assumption that this structure is what remains of that tram system. Enjoy a bit of our past compliments of both Bud and me.

O.K. This shot and the next one were NOT taken by me. Rather, they were taken by my husband. He walked out on the thing...I did not! He took this looking back towards the shoreline where I was shaking in my boots.
LIKE I SAID....I DID NOT TAKE THIS SHOT, EITHER!My husband was the insane photographer, and I was the hysterical wife fretting and stewing about the danger of what he was doing. I still cannot believe he went out there to take a picture. This shows you what crazy things people will do just for that perfect photo!
***HELP NEEDED: For those of you viewing this post, I want to apologize for the blurred thumbnail on Louis’s page. I had the worst time trying to get the photo small enough for Linky to allow it to post, and you see what happened...a blurred mess without a way to remove it and try again. If any of you can tell me what I need to do to reduce the size, I would love to hear from you.
