As beautiful as these bridges are, I hate it when people put huge oversize files on the web. Please downsize your photos, I am on high speed internet and have a large monitor and it still took forever to view this post and the photos were waaaaaaaaay larger than the browser window can accomodate. And not so many, 1 or 2 photos is just fine.

(and there already is a beautiful bridges thread somewhere)

I changed the IMG tags to URL. These pics were indeed way too big, some of them were 1 - 5 MB each. It took my high speed connection a few minutes to download them all.

The stone arch bridges of the Blue Ridge Parkway - there are over 100 along this scenic route. Simple design, built without mortar...less is more.
