Rex's Little Weekend Adventure: No. 60

Rex has made it his job to find something new for me to do or see here every weekend. And after more than a year, he keeps pulling it off.
We discovered this fantastic 95-year-old pedestrian suspension bridge on Sunday located here in the Bankers Hill neighborhood. And, yes, it jiggles and sways as you walk across.
The bridge is held in place by steel cables that are anchored on both sides of the canyon.

I wouldn't want to be on this thing during an earthquake.

The bridge spans 375 feet across one of the many small canyons that define much of San Diego's landscape.

Several Web sites say the bridge was built to link isolated neighborhoods on one side of the canyon to street car lines running on the other side.
