The Bridge Between Two Continents

About 2km south from the Hafnaberg car park, the Bridge Between Two Continents is a thin steel span in the middle of nowhere, supposedly crossing the rift separating the North American and Eurasian continental plates. “Contrived” doesn’t begin to describe it, but the idea is fun and it’s perked up by “Welcome to America” and “Welcome to Europe” signs that greet you as you cross. The bridge is decked in steel mesh, so you can look down into the ravine below along the way, though this isn’t especially deep or at all dangerous – you can easily walk through it from either end and pass under the bridge.
