Kane Off The Beaten Path
To the east of Kane, along a bumpy, narrow roller coater of a road is the Kinzua Bridge State Park. Straddling the steep Kinzua Creek Gorge, this park is home to a railroad bridge which once spanned the 2,053-foot-long viaduct. Completed in 1882, it was the highest railroad bridge ever built, earning the structure its badge as the "Eighth Wonder of the World."
Unfortunately, mother nature did the bridge in just a few years ago, tearing the center of the bridge down and laying it wasted along the gorge's floor. Either end still stands, providing a reminder of its former glory.
This is definitely a sight to see and worth the trip should you ever find yourself in the area.Related to:
