Red Railed Rainbow


The bridge with red railings.

Taken at Point No Point with Melinda Green Harvey on her visit to these parts.


 I am on the road for a few days, so if I am slow in responding to comments, that is why.

  1. You noted earlier that the brdge is built on a large fallen log but I havent seen the log in your or Melinda’s photos. Am curious to know exactly how it was done.


    • Hi goemack – I was surprised to see this comment, thinking it was on a really old post. I had totally forgotten I scheduled this post before we went away, and in fact stayed up too late last night getting today’s other post ready.
      I have no idea how they actually did it – the log is very large diameter – maybe 70 to 100cm. The boards on top are set onto a framework that is attached to the top of the log. All that is easy to figure out. What I don’t get is how they got the log there and when. I suspect it was when the area was logged maybe 30 or more years ago and that the tree was felled across the gap and then trimmed at both ends. But, it could have been floated in on a really calm day or trucked in when the trail to this area was still a road and lifted into place with a crane, or a lot of mechanical ingenuity, blocks and tackles. I suppose if they every have to replace it, something quite different will be used instead.
