THE COLORADO RIVER BRIDGE at Moab, Utah.
The bridge was built in 1911 and at the time it was constructed was the longest suspension bridge west of the Mississippi River. It almost collapsed in 1937 by the weight of too many sheep! Today, massive new highway construction speaks volumes on the way tourism has changed the area. For more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
HIGH BRIDGE over the KENTUCKY RIVER
GLEN CANYON DAM BRIDGE.
In 1959, the bridge over the Colorado River connecting Utah and Arizona was completed and work on the massive Glen canyon dam began in earnest. Note the diversion tunnel below and the huge coffer dam built to divert river flow. The dam was completed in 1963.
HERB RINGER came West from his home in New Jersey in 1939. Camera in hand, Herb captured the American West, from the Canadian Border to the Rio Grande and from the Big Sur coast to the High Plains.
We believe Herb’s collection of Life in the West is one of the finest. His work has been published in The Zephyr for 20 years. I am pleased finally, to offer Herb’s photographs in color. We are also building a new ‘album’ of his work, elsewhere on this site.
My dear friend died on December 11, 1998…JS
