Exploring Fabius Township and St. Joseph County, Michigan, with side trips all over this Great Lakes state

Sunday, May 30, 2010

The view from the other side

Yes, we are back at the Cowling Road bridge (Fabius Towhship is bridge-deprived).   Unlike our first visit now all the leaves are out and the sun is shining, maybe a little too brightly.  We are looking southeast and if we could walk along beside the Rocky River, we and it would arrive in downtown Three Rivers.  This view of the bridge give you a glimpse of the sag developing, but isn't that something we all face? 

Across the road a farmer was plowing and cattle were grazing.  And down the road the first haying had already occurred and it is still May, one more piece of evidence for applying "spectacular" to this year's spring.  Question: how can you call it spring when the temperatures are in the high 80's?!

For more intact bridges, pleas visit Louis la Vache's Sunday Bridges from around the world.

  3. What a nice bridge! Looks a lot like those 2000 years old roman bridges one can still find in Italy or in the south of France
