Trip on Hwy 12 West2 July 26, 2013 - 44

I just came across the Sunday Stills challenge and thought I’d make my first contributions.

This is an older trestle bridge that I call “Span 27” based on what was scrawled on a rusty leg of the bridge in what looked like chalk. The Span 27 Bridge is a few miles outside Minot, North Dakota and extends over a gully through which an old highway (Hwy 12) now runs. I had no idea it existed. I was just out with my camera looking around. Honestly I wouldn’t have thought it was in much use given how rusted it was underneath, but during the three or so hours I was there two trains passed overhead.

  2. I love the trestle. We have one that is similar, The Portageville Bridge over the High Falls in Letchworth State park. Thanks for sharing.
