This bridge is made of steel instead of wood. Man and nature combine in this beautiful view of a deep ravine in Conway, Massachusetts. The granite blocks and the steel girders going from the base of the ravine to support the railroad track many feet above are the work of man but the view beyond the bridge, tall pines and hardwood trees, leads one directly back to wilderness.
