Quick Spin up the River

I took a little ride up along the Susquehanna River, noodling back and forth across some back country roads. It was a beautiful day for it, sunny with reasonable temperatures and low humidity. I stopped off at the Rockville Bridge, which is still the world's longest stone masonry railroad viaduct at 3,820 feet long. It was built in the early 20th century, mostly by Italian immigrants, and remains a unique piece of engineering architecture.
This is actually a nice place to stop, with beautiful, old growth trees creating a cooling canopy over the little park that sits there.
I took a couple of quick pics and hit the road for home.
