Just out for the ride, ended up going over the RT301 Harry Nice Bridge from Va to MD. The second photo was starting the climb on the high point of the bridge before my acrophobia started to kick in and could not look over the side any more. At 135 ft high and 2.2 miles long it is always interesting for me.

The second bridge to cross was the Thomas Johnson Bridge in Solomon Islands. This one is at 140ft. But 1.4 miles long. Then I had to drive back over both to come home.

I added a third bridge today on a run up thru Maryland. This is the Rt 50 Chesapeake Bay bridge in Annapolis. And at just over 4 miles and almost 200 ft tall. I also found that I suffer from Gephyrophobia a fear of bridges and heights. And it does not help that it is noted as one of the scariest bridges in America. I force my way thru it, but definitely not sight seeing on the bridge.

My next project is to do it again in a few weeks and make it to Ocean City than down thru the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel which is 14 miles long.
