A BIRTHDAY HIKE: TBTN with the L.A. Trail Hikers

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I was compelled to invite my friend Sangeetha to enjoy The Bridge To Nowhere hike with the L.A. Trail Hikers.

She is a true peakbagger at heart, but this hike is so much fun I had to drag her along.

The Bridge to Nowhere is an arch bridge that was built in 1936 north of Azusa, California in the San Gabriel Mountains. It spans the East Fork of the San Gabriel River and was meant to be part of a road connecting the San Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood.

The East Fork Road was still under construction when it was washed out during the great flood of March 12, 1938.[1] The East Fork Road project was abandoned as a result of the flood, leaving the bridge forever stranded in the middle of what is now the Sheep Mountain Wilderness.

I love to do this hike with the L.A. Trailhikers, they could do it with their eyes shut and have fun doing it.


On a different note someone (Pam here on Spark) suggested I eat the leaves on my beets. I thought it was a strange thing to do, but I was pleasantly surprised at the great taste! It pays off to the read comments on Spark blogs to get your best tips.

    this is on my bucket list still, since seeing a Huel Howser program where he went there but he made it look like it didn't take much time or walking (I bet that was editing) I am curious how long it took you

    Think of the stories you could create about how a bridge to nowhere happened? Fairies? Aliens? Looks like a gorgeous hike. Glad you had such a wonderful day.
