An iPhone Sunrise at “the first, licensed African American-owned and operated airport in Maryland, if not the nation, opened on this site in 1941. Originally known as “Riverside Field”, the Columbia Air Center was established by a group of African American aviators known as the Cloud Club”.   For more information visit: PG County Parks.

A Bridge With A View

The Governor Harry W. Nice Bridge is scary.   It’s about 2 miles long, has two narrow lanes and no shoulders.  Concrete barriers line the bridge to stop a vehicle from plummeting over the side.   And the bridge is steep.   The Bridge opened in 1940 and carries a lot of traffic across the Potomac River between southern Maryland and King George, Virginia.    About a week ago I got stuck at the top of the bridge for repair work.   And it was scary —  so I had to do something to entertain myself so panic wouldn’t set in.   That’s when I yanked out the ‘ole iPhone and started taking pictures of PEPCO’s Morgantown Generating Station on the Maryland side.   If nothing else, that damn bridge has a view of the Power Plant.
