2015-08-23 - Sunday Walkabout with Gray

~4.9 miles @ ~19.9 min/mi

A figure-8 course takes us across the trestle high above Rock Creek and then beneath it as DD Gray and I trek upstream. According to [1] it was "... initially 1400 feet long, 67 feet high and reputed to be the largest of its type in the B&O system ... In 1904, much of the span was replaced by fill, reducing its length to 281 feet, and a single steel deck plate girder span inserted over Rock Creek. The trestle was rebuilt in 1928, and again in 1972 following extensive damage done by Tropical Storm Agnes. ...". Experimenting with a panorama photo effect makes it apparently swoop like part of a roller coaster ride!
