The rain held off for most of the day and it wasn’t at all as cold as it could have been. We had a blast and we hope you did, too. Here are some highlights from Bridge Day :
Rafters finish their trip under the bridge, with parachutes floating above them.
A tandem team gets ready to leap while a brave woman in pink takes a Hail Mary dive.
And she goes deep!
The crowd presses in for good look at the jumping platform.
Watchers on the train tracks hold their breathe as a chute opens.
The New River has high water=a smaller landing zone. This is what the jumpers are aiming for.
We love this BASE jumper’s style.
Two chutes drift down, one after another.
…And the New River Gorge Bridge returns to big, beautiful normal. Until next year!
