In the Air Force, stationed at Det 2 in Holbrook, AZ, we would go out to Chevlon Canyon and party on the little beach area and swim. One brave soul (won't mention his name for privacy)jumped from the bridge and ended up blowing both his knees out on impact. We had to rescue him from a raft. Quite the day! Lots of specs on the bridge but can't find the actual height. Anyone know?
@Tony, ah yes, my commitment to a modest photo record did not include attempts at levitation.
What Craig...no views from underneath? ;-)
This truly is a unique location and well worth the detour off the interstate. Photographing this bridge was the cap of a grand day of bridge hunting.
A fine example of a pony truss, but this setting is spectacular! Must-see.
The road used to be called McLaws road from Holbrook to Winslow. Growing up in Joseph City we called it Chevelon road before the county put up the street signs. I'm not sure when the county changed the named from Winslow to the Joseph City road to Territorial Road.
Very much worth the drive! The setting is amazing. One note; Google maps shows McLaws running out to 99, but at the highway, it is called Territorial Rd, which cost us about 15 minutes.
