This photo gives a perspective of the bridge over Indian Bend Wash. Before the bridge was built, the roadway was down where the bed of the wash is located. When there were heavy rains, maybe once or twice a year, the water would flow over the road. Usually it was just an inch or two and people would drive through the flowing river. But every once in a while, the water would be deep enough that a car would get swept off the road.
The red stripes on the bridge are not just for decoration. They serve a purpose, as I will show tomorrow.
This week we are showing photos of the subtle beauty of nature in Yosemite National Park on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
