    Your bridges are a lot prettier than they are in Cleveland. That's no fair.

    *Technically that first one's not a bridge, it's a tram/rail-way.

    Great Topic Idea Too! (Too bad you left out 1x1's. )

    A common antagonist in Scandinavian folk stories, the 1x1 eats children in the woods who are unable to run up steep hills.

    I really like the idea behind this thread, but I don't have an Ogre. I do have a bike which I think of as the Ogre's strange, drop bar cousin, the Fargo! So, I went on a little ride today with the specific intent of getting some bridge pics. Here ya go!

    It's a constant cycle all winter long. We get a dump of snow, next a Chinook wind blows in and it all evaporates. It's so dry here that snow evaporates before it has a chance to get in to the ground.

    I set out to find bridges today...

    I bundled up, strapped my fishing pole on my 1x1 and was on a mission to relax find some bridges for this thread today.

    Had to take the paved trail at first, but crossed under this bridge. It's the tallest bridge in Ohio, and pretty neat. Pictures don't do it justice on how big and high up it is.



    They're building a new bridge in the middle. I'm not sure of the details, but I know it's getting old and after some other bridge collapsed a few years ago, this one's next to be rebuilt.



    It's a little weird-feeling riding underneath this bridge. There's been a couple people who have jumped off, and there's a memorial underneath.



    Hopped off onto a gravel road and followed that for a bit. Some of the puddles were iced over, good to crunch through them Found this bridge to stop and fish for awhile. No bites, but a good spot to remember for another day.







    On my way back I blazed some of my own trails and followed the river where I could, I was also on the paved trail some of the time, too. It was great to explore, besides my gloves, pants and socks being covered in burrs I dove off the paved trail to go toward the river and ride around on the rocks and on my way back found this bridge, thought it was really cool.



    A fallen tree had completely blocked everything from passing through on the other side.



    I picked back up on the paved trail and hopped off again later on to follow a dried-up creek bed a ways to find this last bridge for the day.



    Great way to waste some time today while it's still somewhat warm out and I had a day off. I should have covered the vent holes in my cycling shoes (or brought some extra shoes) because my toes were a bit chilly (even with my wool socks), and walking on the rocks while fishing was pretty shaky.

    It's a little known fact that original children's story featured a Karate Monkey under the bridge, not a Troll:
