This Fall I wanted to take a picture of every bridge on the Virginia Creeper Trail. It didn’t happen. One reason is that I didn’t bike through the entire trail in the Fall, well that is pretty much is the reason. We went there right in the middle of the Fall color season but could not make all 17 miles from White top to Damascus. I think there are around 30 of them on the trail, all look and made slightly different. All of them were made to hold a train, but I think many of them were rebuild since the train tracks were taken down. You can see that construction materials are the same as used on the railroad tracks, big and strong.
For this bridge I was trying to find something interesting in the foreground and decided to use this plant, I called it Rabbit Ears plant. It is very low to the ground and it took me a few takes to get it all in at the right angle. BTW, I think it is much better if you look at this image in large format – just click on it and it will be open in higher quality and larger format. Thanks for stopping by!
