"When I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."

Det er snart tid for Brigde Day Rappel  2008.

"Bridge Day™ is the largest one-day festival in West Virginia.

On the third Saturday in October, the Fayette County Plateau Chamber of Commerce hosts Bridge Day™ to commemorate the October, 1977 completion of the New River Gorge Bridge.

The New River Gorge Bridge is the world's second longest steel arch bridge with a main span of 1,700 feet.  At 876 feet above the New River, the New River Gorge Bridge is the second highest bridge in he United States and the highest bridge east of the Mississippi.

Bridge Day™ is unique in that it is the only day visitors may walk across the bridge.  BASE jumpers are permitted to parachute off the bridge. Rappellers are allowed to descend and ascend fixed ropes. Vendors line both ends of the bridge selling stained glass, crafts, shirts, photos, and refreshments.  Bridge Day™ is West Virginia's largest one-day festival and is rated one of the top 100 festivals in North America."

Bridge Day™ is Saturday, October 18, 2014

"Bridge Day™ has been held every year since 1992 with the exception of 2001 - due to the 9-11 terrorist attack.  Since that time the number of indivduals rappelling has increased over three-fold.  The chart below depicts the overall statistics for the Bridge Day™ rappel."
