The Trestle

Pat and I enjoy discovering and photographing old railroad trestles. This trestle was discovered on the Grand River near Rives Junction, Michigan. There was a viewing point pull off that made landscape pictures possible. I wanted some close-ups and some shots from the bridge. To get to the trestle I fought my way through the forest primeval. To my surprise, I came upon a mosquito convention attended by every mosquito in Michigan. After donating a few pints of blood, I reached the trestle and walked out on its still sturdy ties. Next time I will bring a pith helmet and machete.
