Photographer Mark Van Scyoc of New Holland snapped this portrait of his wife, Donna, and friend Donna Bollinger on the former New York Central Railroad bridge in the Tiadaghton State Forest, Lycoming County, where it crosses Pine Creek near the town of Cedar Run.

Users of the Pine Creek Rail Trail will find that four similar iron bridges span the creek. At one time, before the railroad was built, the creek was used to float logs downstream to the West Branch of the Susquehanna River to lumber mills in Williamsport.
