As stated in an earlier post, Glen Echo Creek surfaces above ground several places on its way from the hills to the bay. One of the longest stretches runs for several blocks just off of Piedmont Avenue, a busy shopping district. The creek wends its way through a small park, behind houses and a senior citizen complex, and along public paths before it goes underground again. Neighbors volunteer to maintain the creek bed and restore plants native to the riparian community. The cyclone fence borders Monte Vista Avenue that bridges the creek. The culvert that runs under the street seems to represent both tunnel and bridge at the same time. For more bridge photos from around the world, visit «Louis La Vache's» Sunday Bridge meme.
