|John: Rochfort Trestle Bridge|
I was impressed to find out that the Rochfort Trestle Bridge is still in use by the Canadian National Railroad. Updates have been made along the way, but the ability of the Rochfort Trestle to still carry trains today only adds to the impressiveness of the magnificent structure.

The stop was as unique as its history. The Mayerthorpe Freelancer has an interesting article about walking the bridge. It appears that several brave residents have walked the top of the structure at one time or another. Although I'm sure the Rochfort Trestle Bridge provides stunning views of the landscape, I'm also sure that my feet will remain on the ground.
Before you ask, no, we didn't get to see a train go across. However; how could we be disappointed? The structure is stunning and the surrounding area is very pretty. We also enjoyed stopping in the nearby community of Rochfort Bridge. All-in-all it was a very good visit.

For those of you who were tracking our mileage, the Rochfort Trestle Bridge is 2,473 miles from our Tennessee home. A long way gone, a long way to go.
