Amazing photos from Ophir Loop's abandoned trestles

So... I've finally gotten around to updating some aging links, and have been focusing on my Remaining Equipment page (which is actually remaining anything - right-of-way, structures, etc).  Hmmm - maybe I should rename that... any suggestions?

Anyway, my updates led me back to David Dye's amazing work in documenting what's left of the right-of-way and trestles of the Ophir Loop.  Dave's created several pages which I've linked to from my Remains page, but the most amazing is this map - which (if you hover your mouse on the yellow dots) shows close-ups of many of the foundations, cuts, etc of the bridges.

Dave must've done some climbing & hiking, since this location is on the side of a mountain.
