The Bridge I Use the Most

     I had never thought about the bridge I have gone over more than any other bridge. I took the picture on my bike trip. This bridge was put in to take traffic from our trails across the river. So there's this bridge on the west end of the trails and the exact same bridge on the eastern end of the trails. I have crossed this bridge walking, cycling and skiing. 

     I ride at least 1000 km a summer. Although there are many other trails I do ride this one quite often. In the winter there are cross country skiing areas on both sides of this bridge. It's kind of cool to ski across a bridge.

    Now I like the look of this bridge although it doesn't compare with the old steel rail way bridge.

I hadn't noticed the clouds in the photo

It's a hard bridge to photograph as there's not a good angle on it.

I did get a shot with most of the bridge.
     So there's the beautiful bridge that I have crossed more than any other bridge.

    1. It shows nicely but it's only about three meters wide. Surprising that you can drive a loaded gravel truck over it.

  4. There is something about bridges that are very special : bringing people together, linking distant parts.

    1. Just thinking about the meaning of the word bridge can give us quite few ideas.

    1. It's a well used bridge and lots of people simply spend time viewing the scene from a great vantage point.

  6. Lovely country you live in and one that can soften the structure of a bridge.

  7. It looks like a modern no frills no nonsense bridge. Very utilitarian.

  8. Thanks for sharing your most used bridge, Red. It does look like it does the job it was created for. And if you had not introduced us, I never would have known it existed! :-)

  9. This is quite the bridge and you did a wonderful job of capturing it Red. I can't even imagine skiing across this, mind you I can't imagine even strapping on a pair of skis! lol I love the big white fluffy clouds.

    1. I had to work at it to even get a shot . When it was first built the willows hadn't grown up.
