It's a special stop for me for a few reasons:
1. I was raised in and lived in WV for 33 years. The state is beautiful and I often took this for granted when I actually lived there.
2. I camped there many, many years ago and witnessed many brave, crazy base jumpers leaping off of the perfectly good structure.
3. Jon proposed to me at this bridge's overlook in December of 2002. Almost 10 years. Wow.
4. This bridge has carried me to and from long, lost family and friends numerous times over the years.

|loved this because Ethan is going in for a kiss|
|Handsome Jon and the breathtaking bridge saved this photo from Ethan's non-smile, my very unflattering shirt (I am not pregnant and will not be again), and Andrew's unibomber-esque attire.|
|And after the stop was done, we crossed it: the 5th highest vehicular bridge on our planet.|
