Views of Two Bridges

We crossed the Mississippi River in Chester, IL.  The Chester Bridge is a continuous truss bridge.  It was built in 1941 and connects Illinois to Missouri.  

We also visited the historical Waco suspension bridge.  At the time of it's completion in 1870, it was the longest single span suspension bridge west of the Mississippi.  It served as the Chishom Trail crossing. 

These sculptures were on the grounds as well.  Branding the Brazos, by Robert Summers.  Beautiful!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Lovely bridges! We have several bridges here in our town that remind me of those. Are you enjoying the hot, Texas heat? Be careful; don't get a sunburn on that white Wisconsin skin! Blessings from Bama!
