Found a new neat place for a Boxster Pic today

A state park about an hour away, the wife and I wanted to get away for a while today. I had never been here before. An almost deserted park with a bridge built in 1939...couldn't pass up a pic of the car.



Tishomingo State Park

Great shot! Looks like a good place to come back to as the seasons change. Send some of that warm weather northward please.

Cool, a cable suspension bridge.

Do they allow cars on it?
I'm thinking back then it was designed for traffic less than 2000 lbs unless they upgraded the cables to thicker and beefed up the anchor blocks.

A shot of the Boxster ON the bridge would be one of kind.

No cars

In fact the sign says only 5 people at a time on the bridge, no one read that as I saw at least 20 people on it at one time. By the time we left the park was deserted and I took the car pictures
