Houston’s skyline may light up the night, but just outside the city limits you plunge back into nature as swamps and woods rise up around the highways.
The Brazos River is one of those areas. More than just an outcropping of the natural terrain that Texas has carved up into civilization, the Brazos River is also a throwback to a bygone time.
As drivers cross the lush waterway, they pass parallel to the old Pennsylvania Steel Company railway bridge, which was built in 1906.
Thanks to one YouTuber, you can now experience the bridge like you never have before.
Dale Quest posted a short video filmed using a drone.
The drone flies over the bridge and explores the area around it.
