Next Door

If you drive on Arroyo just over the border into Pasadena, you'll pass by the gorgeous San Rafael Avenue bridge. It isn't as famous as the Colorado Street bridge a little farther up the road, or as meaningful to preservationists as our own Oaklawn bridge, but it is lovely in its own right. (It's even prettier at night.)

It's also a perfect subject when you pull over to check a text message on your iPhone and realize your Retro Camera app would be a nice way to capture the scene...

A rosy bridge crossing the canyon! What a wonderful way to wake up with this and my first cup of coffee.

Been on that bridge many times, but never actually have "seen" it.

Great photograph. You make me want to play around with my phone camera now.

THanks, you guys!

Earl, there is a great little bench there that provides a pretty decent view when the trees are trimmed. :-)

How do you get that underneath view?

A pink bridge. Lovely!

Laurie said...

Thanks, everyone!

Laurie said...

Oh, and Earl -- just park and walk over until you see it. You just have to crouch down right before that bench.

park in the small lot next to the bridge and walk down the remnants of the Bush garden trail.
