Sure is a very nice bridge. Nice river and by the looks probably swells considerably in flood.

Interesting how horses fared when confronted with a long covered bridge.

Small foot bridge over a creek, deep in a redwood forest.

Beautiful photo.
Very nice forest. I can imagine it would be a great place to immerse oneself in.

I had not thought about this at all. I never lived on a farm or been around horses really that much.

I guess it would be possible they could get spooked going thru a covered bridge, especially a very long bridge such as presented here?

Thanks! Yes, it is an amazing thing to walk among the redwood trees where one is over 310 feet tall and another is more than 1400 years old. It's a perspective altering experience. :-D

It is not bridge, but the Sky Walk.

Hey! I know a little history behind that bridge. That bridge was on a cable show, "Engineering Catastrophes"! This is the bridge that replaced the 'catastrophe'.
Quite a distinctive and beautiful bridge and a great shot of it!

The 'catastrophe' was the old bridge was not designed for this apparently harshly humid location. Consequently, the cables were corroding at a rapid pace AND, get this,... could not be replaced due to the design of the bridge.

Hence, this new bridge, which is designed so that the cables can be safely replaced as needed without rebuilding it or another one!

Thanks for the information! I suppose that's the reason behind the mismatch between the suspension portion, and the end furthest away from the viewer in this image?
