    Just a quick pic of the highest bridge in Europe ( the valley underneath is about a mile deep), near the city of Millau in France. I almost rearended the French guy in front of me who slowed down to 30 mph suddenly to admire the bridge.

    The pointy things are the pillars of the bridge that hangs on them by thick cables. The franch name is "viaduc de Millau"

    The toll was €7.20 this year, some 10$
