The Bridge to Nowhere

Saturday, September 01, 2012

This was supposed to be a September goals blog, but as I sat down to write it I noticed that goals are still a bit fuzzy and need a bit more work. I'll do the goals write-up by the end of this 3-day weekend.

Instead I'll post some pictures from last weekend's hike which took me to the Bridge to Nowhere, a remainder of a 1930's attempt to build a road through these beautiful mountains.

In 1938, a significant rainstorm occurred which washed out the road and damaged some of the bridges. This bridge is the only one remaining.

The bridge has become a weekend bungee jumping spot and in the afternoon you can find a huge crowd of "kids" there. This does, however, not take away from the beauty of this hike.

It's a 5-mile hike to the bridge (10 miles round trip) with unavoidable creek crossings (even the bungee jumpers have no other way to get there but to hike in).

Yes, I had to get my feet wet...

We opted to move a bit beyond the bridge, which involved some light rock scrambling...

... and ultimately brought us to a wonderfully secluded lunch spot.

Hydration is vital :)

Another awesome weekend adventure.
