Chilean Bridges: President Frei Bridge

We drove today from Santiago almost 700 km south as we began studying bridge damage from the February 27th (M8.8) earthquake (I felt a small aftershock as I wrote this sentence).

Surprisingly, there is a suspension bridge (as well as many old steam powered tractors) in Carahue Chile. The bridge was named after President Frei of Chile and it crosses the broad Imperial River.
