Back in October I blogged about my trip through Vermont and New York, and some of the best pictures I took during that trip was a shot of Lake Champlain with the Crowns Point Bridge in the background. That same bridge closed literally a day after I had driven over it, and was finally demolished forever yesterday morning:
As it turns out, there were divers in the water around the same time I had driven over the bridge, and it was since discovered that in some parts the bridge was not even connected to the concrete piers beneath it.
Who knew the picture I took of the bridge would turn out to be the very last one I would ever make before it closed permanently? I found myself truly saddened by its demolition, as another piece of our history is now gone for no other reason than because of the gross incompetence and stupidity of our local politicians. Thanks Albany!
Here’s a photo from my last view of the Lake Champlain Bridge before I drove over. You can also read more about its history here.
