"Perspective View of Dale Creek Bridge" title per Glenn Willumson. "Dale Creek Bridge was completed in 1868. It was approximately 20 miles southeast of Laramie, Wyoming. It was 720 feet long and 125 feet high (at its highest point). The bridge swayed in the wind and wires can be seen in this photograph and others added to try to stabilize the structure. The wooden bridge was replaced by an iron bridge in 1876. The bridge was abandonned in 1901 when the rail line was rerouted" remarks per Glenn Willumson for the NEA Russell Grant, July 2013 - June 2015.
