This is a summertime view of the bridge into the town of Montoursville from the city of Williamsport, in north central Pennsylvania. It was over 100 degrees in the shade, but it was especially hot in the mostly dried up creek bed of Lycoming Creek here, where it meets the Susquehanna River. The good news is that it gave me a rare opportunity to find a very different angle to shoot the old iron bridge.
The bridge was built in 1931, fully refurbished in 1994 and is currently open to daily traffic.
