Wow, this was cool. What a great experience, what a great view. I am nerous about heights, and I had to talk my wife into this because she is afraid of heights. We both loved it. Maybe it's the railings, or maybe it's the harness and safety lines, or maybe it's just the great views, but we both did fine, even when the catwalk shakes when big trucks go over.
Understand that the walk is on the maintenance catwalk directly under the traffic surface of the bridge. This is the bridge they close once a year so they can base jump off. Way Up There.
It's a little expensive, but it's one of those "great to say I did it" experiences. Joel, our guide, was very nice (and informative). He allowed us to take our time (a couple of hours in all) and take a lot of pictures. He even took pictures of us with our camera. And considering all the safety equipment they had to install, and permits they had to get, I can understanding the price.
I'm sure the weather would have a lot to do with how much you enjoy this. We went on a beuatiful day with temps in the 80s and it was great.
