Description 

This T-beam bridge crosses over an old alignment of the Wisconsin & Calument Railroad; it's now the Ice Age Trail and the Badger State Trail. This bridge is very difficult to photograph because of the heavy foliage and the 20-foot straight-down drop to the trail. Fortunately it was early spring and there were no leaves on trees yet, otherwise it would have been nearly impossible to see the bridge from the side. There was no quick way down to the trail, otherwise I could have taken some pics from below.
