Photos From The Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge In Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Here is a shot of me at the office on Monday, August 10th, 2010 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  As part of an annual report project, I and a video crew from ProVideo in Madison, Wisconsin climbed one of the spires of the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge to get a view from 425 ft above the Mississippi River.  The climb was 275 ft by ladder with gear on our backs. The climbed was a tough one on one of the hottest days of the summer in Cape Girardeau.  The temp was a degree or two below 100 with high humidity pushing the heat index up towards 125.  We had hoped for better visibility, but took what we could get since getting permission for this climb is difficult.  I’ve also included one of my favorite shots of the bridge.  It was taken a couple of years ago from a helicopter at sunset.

Thanks for looking!
