|the new bridge in all it`s infinite glory|

When I was putting the bike into the back of the Jeep I couldn`t help but smirk as this was the first day off for me. I had planned on going riding after work on Sunday but it was just too damn cold, yes. I could have sucked it up and gone but the battle of warm comfortable home vs a very cold icy river valley was somewhat of a no brainer.
I finally got to ride across the new bridge connecting Fort Edmonton to Patricia Ravine and Wolf willow. It was opened in November and I had mentioned on here I would check it out, sadly three months later I finally spun across the new suspension bridge.
The houses down by the new bridge have always had my interest as the tiny little neighbourhood seemed quite exclusive . I remember reading on the Edmonton Journal that the homeowners were quite upset about the new bridge and I saw today they had good reason. What once was a nice secluded, private back yard, is now open to lot`s of creepy (including myself) river valley users who will peer into the backyards and back windows of these beautiful homes. I wondered if the city somehow compensated for the "intrusion" but obviously highly doubted it.

edit...It appears I never got a good shot of the bridge, my apologies boys and girls
