A view of the suspension bridge that crosses Tallulah Gorge from the North to the South rim. This structure hangs 80 feet above the floor of the gorge and gives you a great view up and down the valley. It is definitely one of those bridges that will sway when people cross it. If you walk alone over the span it’s easy to control the swinging but when others are passing by, it can quickly get into seasickness territory.
For our visit last weekend, this was the end-point of our descent. After stopping here, we crossed to the South side and then walked back up the stairs. The climb was not what I would call easy but it was certainly worth it! I would love to go back and get a pass to go down to the floor but that’s something we would want to plan as a whole day trip.
I’m sure there are lots of great photo opportunities to view the gorge from the bottom up and to get in close to the falls. Need to put this on my calendar for when the weather cools off a bit.
