Notably: It’s a long way to go, but it is Bridge Day over the New River in Southern West Virginia, not far from Fayetteville and Beckley. I had to cover it a few times as a reporter in my days at the Register-Herald in Beckley–a one-day festival stretched along the span of the New River Bridge, reputed as the country’s longest, and the world’s second-longest, single-span bridge. (The longest is now Shanghai’s Lupu Bridge.) The main attraction are the dozens of BASE jumpers who leap off every few minutes, or every few seconds, into a gorge enflamed by fall colors. The last time the festival was held, before the pandemic (in 2019), it drew 303 jumpers from 41 states, leaping off 790 times. Here’s the bridge when I last saw it in 2009.
