Reflecting on Suicide Bridge by AndySerrano Reflecting on Suicide Bridge by AndySerrano
Reflecting on Suicide Bridge

[link] The first suicide occurred on November 16, 1919 and was followed by a number of others, especially during the Great Depression. Over the years, it is estimated that more than 100 people took their lives leaping the 150 feet into the arroyo below. One of the more notable suicides was when a despondent mother threw her baby girl over the railing on May 1, 1937. She then followed her into the depths of the canyon. Though the mother died, her child miraculously survived. Evidently, her mother had inadvertently tossed her into some nearby trees, and she was later recovered from the thick branches.

Wow, it looks so different at night! The lighting is still pretty neat though I wish it had some more lights to reflect off of.

It does not rain often here. I hope if we get some more rain, the conditions might be right to get some more photos.
