Millau, Fance

From 2001 to the end of 2004, the Millau Viaduct was built in Southern France across the Tarn River Valley.  It is currently the tallest bridge (from the base to the top of the tallest pillar) in the world at 343 meters (1125 feet).  While I lack sufficient funding to go out and see it myself, Google Earth provides an impressive look at it:

2003: Before the bridge, but the bases of the columns are in place

2008: The bridge casting an impressive shadow.

Looking west using the 3D Buildings tool.

You can find it yourself on Google Earth using these coords:     44°05'N     03°01'E

More info: Millau Viaduct Wikipedia

NEW!!!: I've added a map feature to my blog near the top of the page where you can use Google Maps to see a spatial view of all my blog post locations.  Nifty right?

Check back in two weeks to see an island become a peninsula.
