Detail Bridge:


Description:  Perhaps my favorite spot on 11 mile canyon road. You pass through a keyhole (Detail1) and then almost directly over an iron trestle bridge. Below you passes the South Platte River= running wild through a deep rock canyon. Good place to fish too, I hear. Detail 2 is off the road to the North giving a better view of the bridge and gorgeous waters.
