I'd be wary of crossing that bridge too and I'm not afraid of heights.

If the wheels are wide enough on the chair, I might be able to do it, but the trouble is the possibility of freezing in the middle.

I once got caught on a very, very, very high trestle because I froze in fear. My cohorts had to pick up my feet, one by one, and move them from tie to tie. I couldn't move.

I love that bridge! We have only three old iron works spans left in the local county; all are on the natl register of historic places! I'd tackle your bridge with my stick to help me, but worry about twisting an ankle.

Upstate NY was totally crisscrossed by the various railroads in the 19th century. There are derelict bridges, crossings and other railway infrastructures everywhere out here.

Bridge abutments over the creeks make for lovely jumpoffs for the waterholes underneath.

BUT not for me...
