    This is a video I did while on a 15 mile round trip hike with the turn around point being the Goat Canyon Trestle Bridge that is just north of the Mexican Boarder in Southeast San Diego. The wooden trestle bridge is the tallest and largest of its kind in the world. It was built in 1939 after an earthquake collapsed on on of the tunnels and instead of fixing the tunnel they decided to build the trestle bridge over Goat Canyon. It was truly a sight to see. Enjoy

    A good day!

    That bridge doesn't look like it could carry a train.

    Nice work! I am going to have to get out there myself. Some of those shots of the terrain you could almost convince me were from Mars!

    My father-in-law is a big train buff, will need to get him out there.
