We were lucky to have some cool breezes off of the Brazos River at the Illectric River Festival. We also had some nice views of McLane Stadium across the river.
The Waco Suspension Bridge is a beautiful historic bridge that was first opened in 1870. It was once a toll bridge for stagecoaches, cattle, and humans. The only other way to cross the Brazos River at the time was by ferry. Now the bridge is a pedestrian bridge only, and is full of activity on beautiful, sunny days like today.
After a quick Zoo visit, I still had some more walking energy. My next stop was the Washington Avenue Bridge which spans the Brazos River in Waco.
