The 4th Highest Bridge in the United States

Have you ever heard of the Foresthill Bridge? No? Neither had I until Beezy started talking about it. The Foresthill Bridge is located in Auburn, California and is the 4th highest bridge in the United States of America. The bridge is also famous from being featured in the movie XXX starring Vin Diesel.

Looks like an ordinary bridge but then you see how far up from the ground you really are...
Now you can see why Vin Diesel's XXX scene is pretty famous. At 730 feet tall it's no surprise this scene would become famous and people would want to cross over the bridge. I believe you can also walk the trails that are underneath the bridge.
Here's some more photos so you can get an idea of how long and how high this bridge it. It really does deserve it's place in the top 5 tallest of the U.S.A.


If you are ever in Auburn make the stop and see the bridge!

A friend of mine got married up there and we drove over it in a bus and the driver gave us the history! Pretty neat!
