Super Scary Siberian Bridge



This bridge is somewhere in Siberia. It's something like 25 feet above the water with no railings.

No thanks!

Yeah, I think I'd take the the shiny, new metal bridge off to the right, but I'm a real wuss when it comes to bridges. :)

It may be a train only bridge (possibly the TRANS Siberian rail-line?), or a huge toll could be extorted. Things are screwed up in Siberia.

“Things are screwed up in Siberia!” How right you are! I try to remember and confess this “woodyism” to myself. “When I am having a really bad day and everything seems to be caving in around me, as bad as it might seem on the surface or even under the surface, a really bad day in God Bless America is far better that the most glorious day in any part of the former Soviet Union!”
A Practical Painful illustration: While attending his mother’s funeral in Bella Russia, our dear Brother Andre Popov’s passport expired. But after an unplanned and a very unpleasant 2 month detainment, just last week he finally arrived back in the US. When I saw dear Brother Andre Popov late last Monday night, he and his dear bride Ludmelia, were cleaning away! And with a huge smile he ran to greet me, giving me a big Russian style bear hug, the first words out of his mouth, (actual speaking English) “WOODY, WOODY, GOD BLESS AMERICA!”

At the beginning, it looks closer that 25 feet down. But, the boats going underneath the bridge look pretty tiny.

Actually, the wooden bridge looks like an old railroad trestle. I bet the one on the right is the modern replacement. I've seen other videos of offroad enthusiasts crossing old trestles for the fun of it. That's what this looks like to me.

"offroad enthusiasts crossing old trestles" = idiots

i can not begin to tell you how grateful i was to finally arrive to the other side. it was as if it would never end. yeah, i'd been a little nervous. a bridge to read Phillippians 4:4-7 over and over as you cross.

it is a good thing the river was not this wide or i would not have escape from magua and his evil huron...
