The Coolest Bridge Ever

THE WORLD'S TALLEST BRIDGE

The Millau Viaduct (French: le Viaduc de Millau) -- large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France.

The tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 metres (1,125 ft) — slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m (125 ft) shorter than the Empire State Building.

Wow. I'd have a panic attack on that sucker. (Totally freaked out from heights.)

That is freakin' cool!!! I would probably freak though too if I were actually on it. Wowsers. Those are some awesome pictures!

7.8 miles since the last time I posted. See? I'm getting better at posting!

When I saw it on Top Gear I knew I had to put pictures of it on my blog. So totally a work of art. How would it be to have your own work come out so awesome?
