Cee’s Which Way Challenge Week 24…bridging the gap

This weekend my husband biked the 109-mile Michelson Trail in southwestern South Dakota (details and more photos coming up soon.)  Many Which Way photo ops abound during a ride of this sort, but I though this one representative.  The well-maintained trail goes through the Black Hills and in more than one place, a trestle is needed to bridge the gap.  Here’s one such trestle, well-built but not for anyone uncomfortable with heights although, as you can see, there’s a high railing on either side.

    Great photo, Jan–not sure I’d like to cross the trestle on a bike, though.

    • Bill doesn’t remember crossing it, so I guess it wasn’t too scary…or else he was just tired and concentrating. 🙂 It was really more like a bridge than a trestle, with a solid path, so less intimidating.

    I hope you are having a fabulous week!

    • Thanks, Cee. I am having a fabulous week and I appreciate being on of “the chosen.” Wow, that has a really creepy, horror movie sound to it, doesn’t it? 🙂

        You are to funny Janet 😀 I wanted to feature you on something other than odd balls, even though you have turned into the queen of odd balls. Thought I would let other people enjoy your talent

      • Awww, how nice of you, Cee. “Queen of Oddballs”, eh? I think some people might have called me that before, although not for the same reason. 🙂 But really, thanks. I appreciate it.

    Road trip!!! Great photo.

    How ’bout that Janet? We were both selected this week!!

  8. Quite a bike ride! That trestle would make me nervous! 🙂

    • When I posted that photo, Bill said, “Did I go over that?” 🙂 The trail is relatively wide and the railings also quite high and when you’re concentrating on just riding, it must seem much less intimidating.
