On the Trail…in Charleston, South Carolina

Arthur J. Ravenel Jr. Bridge

Charleston captivated us as few cities have ever done. We were in the area and thought we’d stop for a few days; we ended up staying for weeks. There is so much history here, so much beauty, and some of the friendliest people we’ve ever met.

Some of the beauty is man-made, such as the Arthur J. Ravenel Jr. bridge spanning the mouth of the Cooper River. This bridge is part of U.S. Highway 17, the major north-south route through the city. This particular picture was taken in late afternoon from a pier on the edge of the historic district.

    Oh, I forgot that I wanted to say that there is a separate walkway across the new bridge and one can walk or run the entire bridge for a wonderful view and great exercise. This past week with bright sunny and cool days the bridge foot traffic has been considerable.

    One correction. The bridge spans only the Cooper River. Lived here for many years and this bridge was a godsend for improved traffic between Charleston and Mt. Pleasant and its beauty, as opposed to the ugliness of the bridges it replaced, is striking. Your photo is great!
