Sunday Bridge Series: Glen Echo Creek resurfaces

Here's another pedestrian bridge over Glen Echo Creek on Richmond St.  This one has a pergola covered entrance that looks pretty old.  Several redwoods dot the woodland.  The creek stays above ground for about .3 of a mile in a small valley that opens to a vale before it goes under ground again.  Then out of no where are the support piers for the 580 freeway and we're back in urban civilization.  Taken a few days ago  before the current rain storms.  For more bridge views, visit «Louis'» meme, Sunday Bridges.

  2. Beautiful setting and very hard to imagine the change from bucolic woodland to concrete jungle in such short order. Excellent photo.

  4. I'm sure as time passes the view will be obstructed from more branches growing in. I like exploring these little creeks because many have hidden jewels like the one in your photo.
