The Covered Bridges of Swedetown Gorge

Since New Year's Eve was zero degrees and blustery, the pack thought a romp in the Swedetown Creek gorge would be a tolerable adventure. We checked out all the bridges!
We started from the city sledding hill at the edge of town,
so Sisu bridge was the first one we came upon.

The brook was babbling. I'm glad I didn't fall in!
See the bow in the timbers?
Next we glided over the the Middle Bridge.
Thank goodness it's hanging in there!

The National Guard bridge looked artsy with the snow and all.

We peered at the down stream trees from atop the NG bridge.

Finally! We're off again.

The BC conditions were great.

I let her be first.

She's slow, at least compared to me.
We even checked out the trail Arly groomed
this morning.
This is the old Rail Road Ravine bridge,
 now for 2- and 4- legged pedestrians.

We made our way to the dam meadow bridges.

We huddled together.

This is the upstream meadow bridge.

Now were heading back down stream. 
I found a big rock to jump up onto.

Whew! Made it.

I only needed a little encouragement for such a scary feat.

I love the winter weather.

Maybe you can join us next time!
