The Stillwater Lift Bridge. Stillwater, Minnesota

This striking bridge is 81 years old and spans the St. Croix river between Minnesota and Wisconsin. A very popular crossing point, but it will be converted to a walking bridge only soon. A much larger, and higher bridge as been approved to replace it for automobile traffic in the next few years. It is one of my favorite photographic subjects, so I am at least grateful it will remain as a bridge, even if not for cars anymore.

    Before I read your description I thought it looked like a train bridge! It is a beauty. I’m glad too they are keeping it! I’m sure they beautiful way you captured it makes it even more spectacular!

    I love Stillwater Kim been thinking about going there this weekend! Fantastic shot of this very unique bridge!

  • It should be fabulous weather there this weekend, Tina – which means it will be busy, but to me, that just means better people watching!!! lol There is a lot of ‘construction’ in the parking areas right on the water, but it’s still a nice walk. I try not to go on weekends, unless you get there early, the traffic is terrible! Ring my cell if you go on Sunday – would love to connect over coffee or somethin’ !!!
    And thanks for the lovely comment!! : } xxX
