Kinzua Bridge Skywalk

Raphael and I took a drive to Kinzua Bridge State Park (clicking on this link will take you to all blog posts I have written about Kinzua Bridge State Park).

This was my second visit since the “Skywalk” was completed. Raphael had never visited Kinzua Bridge State Park, as the bridge had collapsed from an F1 Tornado in July 2003–a year before he came to live with us as an exchange student. Raphael was in awe, as he gazed upon the damage caused by the tornado, which was still very much in evidence even 8+ years after the tornado. He liked very much the Skywalk as well.

The next picture was taken in October 2011, when Bob and I visited Kinzua Bridge State Park for the first time after the Skywalk was completed.

    Scary! I sometimes feel a bit panicky with heights – esp with the kind you can look down right at your feet!!! Is it spring there – sure looks it!

    Hi Linda, cool photos of the bridge. Actually what is left of the bridge, the tornado did a lot of damage. The view from the skywalk looks pretty. Did trains go over this bridge, it looks familiar?I know one time we drove to western PA and took a train ride that went over a similar looking bridge? Sorry you missed the Snowy Owl. I had read on the PA listserve that another owl was sighted in PA. I hope all is well, thanks for the visit.

    Barb – It is definitely Spring here! Spring weather is early, but I am not complaining! Some people cannot walk across the bridge because of its height.Eileen – Did you click on the link “Kinzua Bridge State Park” in the first paragraph of my blog post? That link will take you to a blog post I wrote in 2009. You can read a short history of the bridge and see more pictures.

    I wonder how I would feel about the skywalk…something happened to me when I got older and I do not like heights any more. I would say even 20 yrs ago they did not bother me at all…

    I don't like looking down through floor boards and knowing I'm that high up! (Yeah, I'm just a bit scared of heights!) Great pictures though! It sure looked like a lovely day to see the bridge, too.

    This looks like a fascinating place to visit, although I'm sure my knees would be shaking as I looked down through those windows on the bridge.

    I have walked across the bridge many times with my family and parents. It was a gorgeous sight in the fall. It did have trains on it and later they just went across and turned around and came back. Shirley from Apollo PA
