I love photographing bridges, both large and small. My earliest bridge images date from the 1980s and 1990s, when I first discovered their attraction. The stone dam/footbridge in the two photos below, located in Negro Bar State Park, no longer exists. It was destroyed during the building of the new Lake Natoma Crossing.

It seems like he managed to accidentally annoy at least a couple of people by suggesting the state line between Oregon and California wasn’t where they thought it was! And […]
