Hello all, I am a very busy father of 4 who likes to get out and do outdoor photography, geocaching, hunting, fishing or just about anything out doors. I have had an interest in Bridges and their designs every since I was a kid. I live in Southeast Kansas and we have some very unique bridges in the area. I actually have a bridge photo album on my facebook page as well as another album I have recently started for unique gravestones. I am also working on a start up from an amateur photographer to making it into a small home business, you will see some of my photos marked Flinthills Fotography. My current photo graphic equipment includes a Nikon N60 35mm Camera, a Nikon L810 Digital and a Nikon D5200 Digital Camera. I am also a licensed amateur radio operator since 1994 with the call of K0PVW, I operate both HF and VHF modes from my vehicle.
I hope to be able to add good photos and decent content to the bridges I visit. Thanks for looking. Rob
UP - Neosho River Bridge (Erie)
I ventured out today to view this bridge and the unfortunate side is this bridge is about to be a lost bridge. The hole in the deck now allows you about 18" on he south side of the bridge to walk across. I am afraid the next good flood that Grouse Creek receives it will claim yet another magnificent bridge. I will post a couple photos when I get time to edit them.
Add some HDR photos of this nice bridge, taken 11/2015
Looks as if this bridge is soon to be doomed.
I took the 5 mile off road trek up to Quincy to check on this bridge today. Sad to say it is very much gone, the Eastern abutment is still intact but the western side of the bridge the abutment is all crumbled down to the river.
I will know more on this bridge by the end of this week including length and some more photos.
I will get up there maybe this weekend and get photos. Very difficult to get to as it is about a 1/3-1/2 mile North of the closest road. I will have to wait until I see a Southbound train come through as it will take over an hour before another train will pass due to no long sidings the whole 30 mile distance of this Sub line.
