Serpentine Connection

A mild January with above freezing temps, made for a nice walk yesterday along the river at dawn. This is a view of the new pedestrian suspension bridge across the Missouri River. The graceful lines of the bridge were designed to reflect the winding flow of the river itself as it traverses some 2300 miles across the great plains of the US.

Ya know, I haven't yet walked on that bridge? I need to get out more. Lovely capture, Raf. ;)

This looks like it would be a dedicated walk - it is a long way and then back again!

That is really lovely, and kudos to the folks responsible for its design and construction. I'm guessing it cost more to make it serpentine to echo the winding river, and it's a thing of beauty because of it. And what a beautiful sky above! Looks like a lovely walk that I would have enjoyed. I walk many miles most day since (the dogs and) I love to explore on foot, so I really appreciate walking trails and pedestrian bridges. Beautiful skies are frosting on the cake. :-)

Happy New Year, raf! (What's left of it, lol)
