Lyons Ferry Bridge
Posted October 30, 2014, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This is an incredible bridge and the scenery both at the bridge and driving to it is equally amazing. Its well worth the long drive to this remote bridge (plus you get the impressive Joso High Bridge next to this bridge). Surprised to see only HAER photos for this bridge on BridgeHunter. http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse...
