Yellowstone River Bridge
Posted December 7, 2011, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I completely forgot that I had a pic of this bridge! Actually, this is a pic from one of my first bridge hunting adventures. I was taking pics of the highway bridge, but the "sister" train bridge was right next to it. Sadly, I was young and immature in those days and not have yet become a "Jedi Master" in the bridgehunting world, and so, I only took three pics of the bridge.
