Our long day trip to Sedona and the red rocks, we also drove route 89 north almost all the way to Flagstaff, riding along the Oak Creek Canyon. More spectacular scenery, and a lot of sharp turns and hills and more. However, first, just a few miles north of Sedona we crossed this bridge, I ended up taking a lot of photos, (ya, I know, what's new?). I found the bridge to be a perfect frame or accent to the natural beauty. A few initial carvers added to the interest factor, of course.

looking south towards Sedona, the water is Oak Creek.
|Using the bridge as a frame, note the initial carvers artwork,|
including a sweetheart's heart.

Love the contrast, and of course, more initials. Even though the rust is
insignificant, I was rather glad to see it AFTER we drove over the bridge.
