    Anyone been over this thing before? I have twice in the same week not too long ago and it's gotta be the most beautiful view I've ever seen in my entire life coming in a close second to driving through Moab. I'm bout convinced after that sight if I ever come up missing you'll find me in the WV mountains somewhere living my best life

    DSC03645 (1).JPG DSC03645 (1).JPG Are you talking about this one? I've been over it, under it, walked it before it was done. The town has a festival every year where they close down one side of the bridge and they bungee jump off of the bridge. Google New River Bridge Day.

    That's the one. Didnt realize it was such a big deal but I can definitely understand why. I'll be going back one day but not in a big truck this time

    Yeah , oh yeah! Many times over that. They say West Virginia almost Heaven.
    Snake River in Twin Falls south of the Truckstop that is pretty Amazing! I did the river walk there one time and as I was getting ready to walk back across the bridge there was a guy getting ready to jump off with a parachute pack. I took video but it's on my old phone.
