Sorry, I messed with the text. How does it look, is that OK? Does it look like you had it? Of course it was going off the page again, but not as bad as VST #5 was. Please let me know if you like it how it is now, and I'll accept ASAP!!

Description   EN   

http://www.purplepeoplebridge.com/History/tabid/536/Default.aspx It is said that this is the longest pedestrian bridge between two states. It shares a trait with another famous bridge, Pond des Arts foot bride, where lovers will add a padlock to the bridge and toss the keys in the river to seal their love. Careful if you plan to cross this bridge in winter, it is not treated. To log this cache you must do the following:   1. Find a sister city on the information pillar at the entrance to the bridge and find which as the largest population numbers per mile and post it. 2. Take a picture with you and/or you GPS unit with the bridge and either Newport on the Levee or the Cincinnati skyline 3. Pick a lock that catches your fancy and take a photo of it with your gps unit. Then cross on over to Newport for some refreshments, ice cream or a bite to eat before continuing.

1 06 June 2016 TommyGator Found it

I have been looking forward to this series ever since it was published, and today I had the opportunity to drive down from Dayton and spend the afternoon grabbing all of them by bike!

This was my first find of the series.  I have crossed this bridge many times in the past, as it is a favorite place to bring out-of-trown visitors.  One of our favorite restaurants was right across the bridge on the Newport side, but has since closed.  Oh well...

I parked on the Newport side and rode my bike over the bridge on a glorious afternoon.  Grabbed the required info, took some snaps, and biked on to the next one.  Email with required info on the way.  Many thanks!
