2009.07.02 Eighteen Bridge Tour Photos



This is actually mostly about the northeastern section of Edmonton's river valley trail system. The bridges make better reference points though, since photos of trails through the trees all start to look the same after awhile.

High Level and Menzies



Followed by Walterdale





James Macdonald and Low Level



Louise Mckinney Park Foot Bridge





Dawson




Capilano






Capilano Foot Bridge



Goldbar WWTP






Rundle Park Foot Bridge




Cloverbar Foot Bridge



Beverly and Cloverbar Bridges, and a rail one in there too


Sunridge Ski Hill's inner tube hill


Heading Back




Now I'm kind of lost. Looking back at the footbridge.


Let's try this way





And that really didn't work. Back I go. Still pretty lost.





Something I recognize




Lost Again




Suffice it to say, I wandered around in the trees for far too long before going back to the road by the Science Park that I knew would lead back to Sunridge, and the Cloverbar foot bridge. I was hoping for a connection on the South side past the refinery, but I went up when I maybe should have gone down? Anyway, a lot of backtracking to get back to Rundle Park again.


From the Rundle Park Foot Bridge heading back to the south side




Capilano Foot Bridge again. The scent of the air coming of Goldbar's biofilters is always so pleasant (it really is).

Dawson Bridge Again


The stretch of trails between the Dawson and Mckinney is so much fun







LMP foot bridge again




Low Level Again


James Macdonald Again







Walterdale Again

Blurry, but it's a bridge


And a photo from that bridge

Iron bridge and Groat Ravine



And here's a rough map of the route:


I'd never been past Goldbar park before so this was a bit of an adventure.
