If you enjoy bridges and trains and tunnels you would love spending a day in this canyon of the Feather River. Hwy 70 and an active railroad climb up into the Sierra Nevada's and the bridges are fantastic.

Neat little Baltimore Truss!

When I first saw this, I thought someone had taken a picture of a bridge on a model railroad layout......lol
