When I am solo hiking there is always a feeling of joy in finding a bridge. Wood, stone, chain, rope each reminds me of our human connection to Nature. The excitement of traversing a ravine, gorge, stream, pond, lake, cliff side etc. Alone it feels as if a fellow traveler has reached out to help you along the trail. The echo of planks beneath your boots echos a message stating I am here. Serenity in looking at a reflection of clouds drifting past or peering into the abyss below and wondering whether the ropes or chains will hold. Lines and curves enticing us to cross over to new adventures.
