On July 9 I wrote about a good walk to check on some flowers. You have two options to get down to the bottom of the valley. You can take a winding trail that gets you to the valley bottom or a set of stairs that takes you to the valley bottom.
I chose to take the stairs. There are about 200 steps. Next time I take the steps , I'll count them. On the way down there are several places where there are openings in the trees and you can see across the valley. There are also glimpses of a bridge spanning the Red Deer River . This bridge is designed for walkers, runners, bicycles, horses and skiers. Oh yes, I have seen a loaded gravel truck cross this bridge.
So here are some of the views I saw as I went down the stairs. Then there's a view of the bridge deck.
