Memphis & Arkansas Bridge Walk

A few pictures from my walk on the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge yesterday. First some fun facts about the bridge and sidewalk on the bridge.
* The only legal sidewalk over the Mississippi River within 500 miles of Memphis.
* The sidewalk has been a part of the Bridge since its opening in 1949.
* The distance to the land of the State of Arkansas is 5,222 feet or about a mile from the Memphis side of the bridge.
* The sidewalk is 100 feet over the water and right next to the whirring traffic of I-55.
* It is loud and the bridge shakes, rattles and sways with most trucks.
* For more info and other interesting tours of Downtown Memphis visit Jimmy Ogle.
