This is a spring shot from some years ago taken in Algonquin Park. The river below is the Oxtongue River, which I showed you in other locations earlier in the month. The footbridge marks the beginning of the Western Uplands backpacking trail, which I have never been on even for a day hike, unless you count wandering a few metres on the other side of the bridge. The largest loop of the trail is eighty eight kilometres in total, with some shorter loops.
Tomorrow we'll see this spot again from another year, but roughly the same time of year.
I love this!ReplyDelete
what an inviting bridge :)ReplyDelete
Such an odd name for a river! It seems like a nice place for a walk. Though maybe not an 88 kilometer walk ;^)ReplyDelete
makes me want to walk and walk!ReplyDelete

A walk and see nature I love it.ReplyDelete
I like this bridge...I'd be tempted to do a shorter, not the 88-mile one, walk, but are there bears in them thar woods?ReplyDelete

You have to get over some day to take a hike!ReplyDelete
Sounds like the kind of place where I'd like to hike.ReplyDelete

Lovely shot . I could stand there for hours and enjoy the sounds and scenery . I love old bridges with history , Thanks for sharing , Have a a good day !ReplyDelete
@Jen: it is!
@Tamera: that takes planning.
@Cloudia: a lovely quote!
@Bibi: oh, yes, there are bears, but as long as you know how to behave in bear country, they're not likely to be a problem.
@Massimo: thank you.
@Marianne: something to keep in mind.
@Revrunner: I know my dad has done a portion as a day hike.
@Hilary: at least on this day!
@Beth: when I took this shot, there were still patches of snow about.
@Country Gal: I like to listen to the flow of the river from this bridge.
so pretty william!ReplyDelete
It looks like it was a misty morning.ReplyDelete
Hmmm. I have only wandered a bit further than that bridge too! Maybe next spring I'll hike a bit further. :)ReplyDelete
Calm and peaceful, my kind of place. :)ReplyDelete
Is that some snow still around? I like this image. Look chilly too.ReplyDelete
Simple and very nice!ReplyDelete
I bet it would look pretty in the fall.ReplyDelete
Great shot of that bridge with a very nice composition.ReplyDelete
It's hard to resist crossing the bridge, I think.
Still looks cold but what a pretty spot.ReplyDelete
@Tanya: thank you!ReplyDelete
@Sharon: it was.
@Tahiti: it's a bridge that seems to enhance its surroundings.
@EG: I feel like exploring further myself.
@Indrani: at least on this day it was calm!
@Birdman: well there were patches of snow here and there.
@VP: thank you!
@Jackie: it would.
@Jan: definitely hard.
@Judy: April can be cool there. I remember hiking a trail some years ago on the last day of the month and finding an icefall still in a ravine.

If flowers adorn the bridge would be like Monet.ReplyDelete
A behind the breastbone to feel the adventure. Fantastic place.
Nice bridge in this peaceful place.ReplyDelete
I think you were the only one person there, that day... right? :)

That's a good shot!ReplyDelete
A blog friend has just spent a couple of days in Algonquin....you'll love this!ReplyDelete
This is the link to her second post....don't miss her first one.
@Mariusz: I can see that.
@Karl: well, I was with friends, but there were a couple of other cars in the lot, so there must have been someone out on the trail.
@Cheryl: it is!
@Denise: it's definitely off the beaten track!
@Jen: it might look quite similar about now!
@Ciel: it does have that effect.
@Marleen: it's quite a good footbridge.
@RedPat: I should!

William, I think that would make for a wonderful trek. How many steps do you imagine that loop to be? Hummmm....ReplyDelete
Nice bridge and I love those trees!ReplyDelete
