The two RV Gypsies walked across the New River Gorge on the under structure of the World famous New River Gorge Arch Bridge - across the canyon on a 24-inch-wide catwalk, 851 feet above the river - in West Virginia. A movie is posted and can be seen by using the TOC button above and choosing "Movies".

clipart of a History BookThe New River Gorge Bridge is a steel arch bridge 3,030 feet long over the New River Gorge near Fayetteville, West Virginia, in the Appalachian Mountains of the eastern United States. With an arch 1,700 feet long, the New River Gorge Bridge was for many years the world's longest arch bridge; it is now the third longest. The bridge is crossed by an average of 16,200 motor vehicles per day.

The roadway of the New River Gorge Bridge is 876 feet above the New River, making it the fifth highest vehicular bridge in the world, and the second highest in the Americas. When it opened in 1977, the New River Gorge Bridge was the highest vehicular bridge in the world, a record it kept until 2004.

In 2005, the structure was further immortalized when a depiction of the span was placed on the West Virginia state quarter.
