About Me 

Email: markgonzalez0619 [at] gmail [dot] com

I am from San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. I grew up on the south side of town where most of the county's historic bridges are located. I have always taken an interest in history and abandoned places. I pass by the 1910 Old Pleasanton Road Medina River Bridge everyday which got me into this hobby. I started becoming a contributor to Bridge Hunter in 2020. My main focus is on bridges in Texas.
