Photo Saturday: The Bridge That Formerly Went Somewhere
Once upon a time, Illinois had money. Then Blagojevich happened, and they didn't have money. So when for reasons as yet unknown Sylvan Island bridge was declared unsafe even though we all walked across it while feeling safer than being stuck in traffic on the I-74 bridge, Illinois didn't have the money to fix it. And then no one had an awesome out of the way trail to walk. The End.
But seriously it's well past a year since they did this and it was basically the coolest place to walk, because it was nice and woodsy and fairly quiet, whereas the "recreation trail" in Moline is constantly beaten by the sun, goes right by the road, and dust from construction sites blow over that thing so hard you can't see where you're going. THANKS ILLINOIS.
