On our way home last weekend from our very quick and very spontaneous trip to Austin, we made a stop in Waco.
We found our way along the Brazos River and parked just yards beyond the south entrance of the famous Waco Suspension Bridge. Never heard of it? Well, read all about it here.
What I will tell you about the bridge is that at one time is was the worlds longest single-span suspension bridge and it was used to cross the Brazos for pedestrians, stagecoaches and cattle drives. It is actually a part of the Chisholm Trail as the sculpture below portrays.
It’s quite interesting to walk across the old bridge and if you ever do, pay special attention to the detail of the wood planks.
Taking the time out of our drive to go across and under it was well worth it. Old structures such as this can really take you back in time, if you allow your imagination to go there.
