A Bridge Allen DIDN'T Build

On a recent trip to Copan Ruins, Allen saw this small bridge crossing a river that runs alongside the main road. Sometimes people think the hanging bridges we build look scary - but I assure you, they look great to the people who are used to using bridges like this one!

You can't really tell in the pictures, but the span of that bridge is around 100 feet! It looks to be mostly held together with twisted wire.

Care to walk across?

By the way, don't forget that we are closing in on the deadline for donations to the Gifts for Gracias Christmas Project. Please join in, if you possibly can. It's a tough year for donations, and every little bit helps! Thanks!
