Weekend Snapshot 51 and Bridging the Gap

I am cheating a little with my weekend snapshot post. I didn't take this photograph this week but I could have. It's a bridge on one of the trails a few miles from my house. I thought it was a good shot to serve both for WS and for my first Bridging the Gap Photo, a new challenge which Alice has started.
I was surprised to jump into a third challenge straight after dragons and reflections but I love bridges. Sort of like I love dragons and reflections. A quick look at my photographs revealed many bridges in several states in the U.S. I thought I'd start with one near home which I've walked across many weekends. My city has over 27 miles of greenway trails allowing people to walk and bike in preserved areas that cut straight across the city and through many neighborhoods. Because the areas that the city has kept for open spaces is mostly along creeks, lakes and rivers, there are a lot of bridges. However, this is the only red one I've spotted so far.


You can browse other WS posts at technorati here and on Monday at the Weekend Snapshot Home.

To join in on Bridging the Gap you can visit Alice at I was Born2Cree8.
