We all waved our thanks to her as we passed.
Reaching the little turn-around at the end of the road,
we gloated over Rachel's command of the situation.
That's when the gunshots began.

Uh huh, yeah, right, gunshots.
Like a shot gun, more like many shotguns...
and they did seem to be getting closer...
We were sure glad for that bright yellow car...
Don't forget the gnats. I think I still have some in my car.

Did we miss the sign that said
"No Trespassing - Survivors Will Be Prosecuted"?
The shooting sounded awfully close, and none of the cars were blaze orange

and the Roebling Suspension Aqueduct Bridge, built by the builder

TomY gives a small speech on the history of John Roebling Bridge, and why the Park Rangers all wear guns.

The Bridge restaurant had a great view of Roebling's bridge from the deck,
and the best food to be had anywhere in sight of the bridge.

I hope to never again need a knife and fork to eat a burger.
