That is correct.  Also known as Teslin Bridge.

Unfortunately, I don't have any more post-worthy bridge photos with me, so I will proceed to borrow one from the internet as well.

Clue 1: An old suspension bridge, dating back to the 30s.

I figured out what bridge it is, and also where you snagged the photo from.

But, since I just went last time, I'll hold my tongue for someone else to get the answer.

Correct. It is also known as the Little Niangua Swinging Bridge.

Oh great, you can simply search by image on google :banghead: I tried to see if that would be the case before I posted the image and it didn't work, but now Google recognizes it?

When I saw this thread, my first plan was to post my picture of the Nisultin Bay Bridge.  But since that's already been done, I'll post what I think will be a fairly easy one for someone to get:

I didn't use an image search, but I did find it by looking for "old suspension bridge 1930s."



I think I get to go next, so here’s an entry.

The new Frederick Douglass Bridge into DC?

Close enough. The car is on the old Douglass Bridge because the new one isn't open yet, but those arches are the new bridge, so I think either or both would have been a perfectly good answer because it shows you recognize where the picture is of. It's not really "into DC," of course, because it connects two parts of DC separated by the Anacostia River, but again, that's picking nits because you knew which bridge it is.

I thought that one might have taken a little longer. Oh well!

I didn't recognize it offhand, but it was not too hard to find.  :)

It was smart on your part to pick a bridge that no one could find through Street View, because the most recent Street View still has the old bridge before construction started. Unfortunately for your chances of stumping us, though, a picture of the new bridge came right up in the sidebar, at which point I put 2 and 2 together.

I've got one to post in a few minutes... stay tuned.

I hadn't even thought about Street View. If I get a chance to go again, though, I have a picture that can't be duplicated by the Street View car.

Taken by me, this month (July 2020). With that said, I'll let my post below serve as a clue. Hopefully it's not too easy.

I guess I've been to seven states this year, counting my own.

Sorry about that - you'd think that after all these years playing photo games on this forum that I'd know to read the rules more carefully before making my first post to one.

No worries. I wasn't going to grouse, especially about you given the effort you've put into the Travel Mapping site.

I had a good idea of what part of the country it was in, so I did a search of things like "suspension bridge Arkansas" and "suspension bridge Missouri".

Huh. You must have better luck than me, because I just tried that myself and didn't find this one.

But, yes, that is correct. A classic Mississippi river crossing complete with the barge and the sunset!

The landscape should've also been a big hint it wasn't in the Ozarks/AR/MO/whatever area, you definitely won't see boreal trees like that there

Hmm. That looks weirdly familiar, so I'm sure it will be obvious in retrospect, but I got nothing.

(Also, MCRoads was technically next in line to post a photo since he got mine correct, so I will give him a chance to answer.)
