Bridge of the Month Quiz, November, 2014
   

Can you identify this bridge? Send an email message to bob@bridgeink.com identifying this bridge by name and location. One winner will be drawn from the correct answers received through November 30, 2014. That lucky winner will receive a free copy of "Bridging the World".

The October Bridge of the Month was the Thomas Creek Bridge in Curry County on the Oregon Coast. In spite of the fact that this is the tallest bridge in Oregon, it is extremely difficuIt to view and I was sure it would be difficult to identify. But once again I underestimated the abilities of you "bridge sleuths". The lucky winner, Jeffrey Stapleton of Centennial, Colorado, was drawn from a surprising number of correct entries. So next month I will try again to make it REALLY tough.

.....The monthly prize is Bridging the World (If the winner already has this book, alternate prizes are available.)

A 208 page hard bound presentation of 306 color photographs of bridges from 6 continents. A perfect addition to any bridge book collection.
