    My wife and her folks and I went hiking along the old railbed just leaving town on Sunday, to a REALLY old bridge/archway.

    We took a GPS with us so I could map the location.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=45+37.522,+-61+26.632&dirflg=w&ie=UTF8&ll=45.625683,-61.437285&spn=0.01082,0.019312&t=h&z=16&g=45+37.522,+-61+26.632&iwloc=addr&lci=lmc:wtcslap:anoramio

    Most shots came out snapshotty -- I never intended any to be really good, but a couple came out nice -- it would make a great location though. Especially in the dead of winter, or in the fall.

    The railway came into town in 1889. This bridge is at LEAST 119 years old. May be older too, because the distance from the top of the archway to the rail bed is huge.

    1.) From the south side of the arch:

    2.) Shot from the North side, to show the decay in the bricks. The inner brick section is massive. Easily 30+ feet in depth. And at least 4 layers thick.

    3.) Closer shot of the architecture in the stonework.

    4.) A fallen telegraph pole along the side of the old rail bed, just near the arch

    I think the first picture would've been great if you would have taken it from a lower angle. like, right above the water level.
