Taken on 11/11/11 just after a snow squall in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Once out at the "sky walk" you could not see the the other end it was snowing so hard.

A tornado on July 21st 2003 took the bridge from it's anchor bolts into the valley. Built in 1882 for New York, Lake Erie & Western railroad to haul coal, oil and timber. 301 feet heigh and 2,053 feet across was once the highest and longest railroad bridge in the world.
