    Kinzua Bridge State Park

    Anyone been there? This place is very close to my house. We used to have family picnics and ride dirt bikes and sleds across it decades ago. A tornado took the middle down in 2003.

    Here is the website. https://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/F...s/default.aspx

    Anyway, they got a grant and built a very expensive Manned Visitors Center recently with a Skywalk and all the bells and whistles to go with it.

    I just recently found my way out to the other end of the bridge and was very excited to find it because it's been about 45 years since I was there!

    After looking at Google Maps and Earth, I decided that I had to find my way to the bottom of the valley, down where the wreckage is.

    Here is a vid I took down to the bottom. When I got there, I figured it was a good idea to get back out!



    When I watched the vid on my pc, I noticed the knocking noise from the front end on my Dub. The camera is clamped to my left turn signal.
    I can't seem to find the source of this knocking. I searched and found some info from the old site, but I checked all that stuff and all is good.

    I'll put some more vids and pics up of the area soon!
