Photo Hunters: Bridge(s)

I searched through my digital photo archive, looking for something unusual and funky and off the beaten path for this one. Alas, I found nothing that struck my fancy. And searching at 1am for photos, after a long day, probably didn’t do much for inspiration, either. Nonetheless, I have some nice photos of regular ol’ bridges. 😀

This is the Route 11 bridge in Brewerton, NY. This bridge stretches over the NYS Barge Canal.

This is a neat wooden footbridge across the Chittenango Creek. We visited the Chittenango Falls State Park that steamy day in July. There is a tremendous waterfall up the creek from where we are here.

Isn’t the next bridge pretty? It goes over the reconstructed Erie Canal in Rome, at the Erie Canal Village. These horses were going to be hitched to the packet boat that was going to take us for the boat ride up and down the canal. It was lovely.

Here’s a beat up old bridge, also in Rome. It is a path leading to one of the oldest oak trees in New York State, at the old historic Fort Bull Site, located next to the Erie Canal Village area.

This is one of my favorite photos of a bridge. This is a lovely little stone driveway bridge we discovered while exploring roads in the Adirondack Park near Trenton, NY. This was a private drive, so we didn’t go far. Aren’t the woods lush?

Here’s a bridge in Albany, NY. It stretches across the Hudson River. The ship below is the U.S.S. Slater, a destroyer escort ship that is a museum. That was a fun visit!

And so there are my boring old bridges! But they are all beautiful in their own way. How did your Photo Hunt go today? Be sure to leave your link in the comments!
