Reno’s Virginia Street Bridge – Demolition Has Started!

Yesterday’s aerial construction demolition photos of the Virginia Street Bridge, the oldest of all the usable bridges spanning the Truckee River. This 1905 iconic bridge is being replaced after sustaining damage from flooding in 1997 and 2005. The bridge has long been the symbol of divorce folklore – newly granted divorcees would cast their wedding rings into the Truckee River from this location. Here are some additional interesting notes:

  • 1939 movie – “Reno” about the life and times of a Nevada divorce lawyer includes the bridge
  • 1961 movie – “The Misfits” starring Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe shows the bridge site
  • Listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1980
  • Over 14,000 visitors and residents use the bridge every day

Aerials of Topaz Lake in Nevada and California

Topaz Lake is located on the Nevada (Douglas County) and California (Mono County) border – about a 90 minute drive south of Reno. In this aerial you can see the reservoir’s residential area is on the northwest shore showing boat access to the water. Boating, water-skiing and fishing are popular here as the lake is regularly stocked with trout. The depth of the reservoir reaches approximately 92 feet.

Aerial Haunted View – Nevada’s Comstock Cemetery

The story of the glowing headstone has been around for years. From a distance, witnesses claim to see a headstone glowing at night. The event is not predictable by any means, and happens on occaision. The glow fades when you approach the cemetery. Many ghost hunters and investigators have tried to solve this mystery by investigating with special permission. You can research these ghost hunters and their experiences online.

Aerial View of Cemetery in Virginia City 2014

I have been to this cemetery during the late afternoon only. It is quite spooky as the sun fades behind the mountains when I soon realized I was not alone. Or was I? You can only suspect you are not alone. The cemetery is closed and night and monitored closely. This is to keep the vandals out. And of course keep the ghosts in.

The cemetery was established in the 1860s and the graves are a nod to the Victorian Era. The metal, stone and woodwork on the terrace graves are quite decadent. Most who were buried here were born outside of Nevada. Back then, the Comstock region required a surplus of workers to labor the mines in an attempt to find a fortune. Most died trying. Apparently some may still be trying, even after their death.

Happy Halloween
