Photohunters: Bridges and Ways

I had to walk a ways in very cold weather to reach one of the bridges that crosses a creek near my house.
I could say that I walked a ways just for this week's photohunt but that wouldn't strictly be true.
I'm walking every day anyway and I wanted to reach the bridge so I could photograph the frozen creek. My round trip walk was less than 2 miles which isn't as far as most of my daily walks. I started trying to walk every day on January 8, 2014 and so far so good!
I prepared a draft for this week's photohunt on Wednesday but after my Thursday walk, I am adding a couple of different bridges I photographed.
These bridges are even closer to my house than the ones in the first group of photographs. The one above crosses a small creek between the Optimist Pool side of the park and the playground and recreational building side of the park.
Looking over the side of this bridge the creek looks like a snow gully.
Walking a ways further I came to the bridge above which leads towards the tennis court.
There's nothing particularly special about these bridges but I like simple wooden foot bridges. I also think they look pretty in the snow and I didn't want to walk a ways further to the lake bridges.

What a lovely and relaxing place to walk. Nature walks are the best. My husband and I like to walk nightly after dinner, and longer hikes on weekends. Happy weekend and photo hunting Carver :)

I love footbridges too. You walked way far enough in that weather and you saw lots of bridges ... perfect combo for the hunt memes.

What a lovely group of photos. I have snow in mine as well and it makes a lovely backdrop and lends a sense of peace and quiet.

Lovely bridges! We had just a bit of snow here... enough to make me glad to live in Alabama :-)
Keep up the walking!
