Cross The Creek

Rainbow lake Trail
Swaying Bridge

An interesting bridge crossing the creek on the way up to Rainbow Lake near Whistler BC. While the platforms and stairs leading onto the bridge have been pushed around by yearly runoffs, the a-frame system keeps the main plank crossing intact.



A Bridge Too Old
A Bridge Too Old

We’ve been crossing this bridge over an unnamed creek for many years on the way to the lookout at Polytrichum. It’s in pretty rough shape and even has a load limit, but should a disaster occur there is only a three foot fall to the creekbed and a bare trickle of water in heavy rainstorms. One way to go from this side while on the other a choice of two.



Bridge underdeck

Been on quite a few runs and walks around False Creek, usually watching the boats, canoes and kayaks on the water or other people enjoying the venue. Then one day I decided it might be fun to photograph the all three bridges from below rather than side views or on level with the decks. For just a brief moment, you can hear all the traffic above and hope the engineers did all the steel calculations correctly. This shot is the underside of the Granville Street bridge displaying its symmetry.
