Road Tripping PA: Kinzua Bridge State Park

Having a bit of vacation is a good way to get the creative juices flowing.  A few days into an extended holiday vacation, we got inspired and headed out on a road trip through Pennsylvania to explore what our home State had to offer.

The Kinzua Viaduct

was one of the coolest sites we saw on our trip.  Once the longest and tallest railroad bridge in the country, the Kinzua Bridge, outside of Mt. Jewett, PA, was destroyed by a tornado in 2003 while it was awaiting repairs.  Today, the destroyed bridge has been turned into a lookout point where you can see the ruins of the bridge hundreds of feet below.  The view is spectacular- you can see for miles in every direction.  I can only imagine how beautiful it would look during the fall.

Check out the pictures of the lookout and ruins below.  There's also a bonus picture of us as ninjas.
