Colorado River Bridge at Wharton, Texas

The Colorado River Bridge at Wharton

This is a closeup of the truss bridge that crosses the Colorado southbound on Business 59 on the south west side of Wharton.

This photo was featured on VFTC (View From The Cab) blog on June 17, 2011 right here: Tachoblog's View From The Cab.

The Colorado River starts somewhere south of Lubbock, Texas and empties into the Gulf of Mexico through the Matagorda Bay near Matagorda, Texas. It's name also means "colored red".
