Default Bridge to Nowhere

Tidal basin opposite Menahaunt Beach in East Falmouth, Ma-Cape Cod. Can't verify but was told all the leaves were dead because of the salt spray from Hurricane Irene.

When I saw the title I immediately thought you had been hiking around the Angeles National Forest, near Los Angeles. There's a rather interesting bridge that's known as the bridge to nowhere ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_...riel_Mountains) ) for information. I always found it odd to spend what seemed like hours trail hiking, crossing and re-crossing a river, getting my feet wet, to arrive at a paved road bridge. It's literally miles from the closest road.

Your picture looks far more friendly and believable.

Very interesting photo. Because the footway goes off both the right and left sides of the photo, it makes me wonder where the trail goes. I don't visit salt marshes very often, so for me the photo also has an unfamiliar and almost exotic feel.

There are (3) of these in the same marsh-this had the best reflection-no idea what they are supposed to do-old and dilapidated-but interesting

Indeed very interesting subject, and very nice reflections - well-photographed too. Also interesting information about the salt spray effects on vegetation.
