At the beginning of this year, we did a report on the demolition of the 1874 Portage Trestle bridge at Letchworth State Park in New York (Link: https://bridgehunterschronicles.wordpress.com/2018/01/16/historic-portage-viaduct-coming-down/). This new post by a blogger named Mike shows the new Portage Viaduct as of June of this year and the old bridge nothing but a memory. I wonder how they could get the historic bridge down so quickly…..
Upper Falls, Letchworth State Park
For today’s post I am back at Letchworth State Park. The bridge over Upper Falls has been replaced and surprisingly, it looks pretty good for a man-made intrusion. You can see the old bridge at this post. With the amount of water in the Genesee river, the mist rising up from the falls created a challenge to keep the front of the lens clear. On the plus side it kept a lot of people from getting too close which gave me plenty of room to setup the tripod… 🙂
