Bridge Reflections

I was on a ride through Montgomery County in the vicinity of Green Lane reservoir and I go past this sign.  I made a u-turn so I could go back and take a photo.  Evidently, between January and September of 2009, 7  motorcyclists crashed on this stretch of road.  After taking the photo, I continued down the 'treacherous' road and was really disappointed.  I expected a nice twisty road and the road didn't live up to the expectation set by the sign.  I've ridden much more challenging roads.

As I approached the end of the twisty part, I came across this bridge, which is my submission for Weekend Reflections #31.

I assume you were on your beloved machine when you took this trip... sometimes I think maybe I need one of those things to get into some of the less likely places too.. I like that bridge photo a lot.

A very nice bridge reflection shot. We have a dangerous motorcycle road nearby as well - only it's not the road that's dangerous, it's the insane racers who are dangerous. Otherwise, it's just plain fun!

It's a beautiful bridge in its own right and your photo enhances its beauty.

Don't get me started on roads that don't keep their promises.

Hi Wayne : )
That is sad about the motorcycle riders. very sad.

I just invited Rebecca to attend the I Heart Faces photo walk in Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia on Saturday June 5 and she mentioned you lived near us as well :) I live in Souderton. I would love for you to join our walk! I am going to try to get Matty to come too! He seems like tons of fun!

I'd venture to guess that you pay more attention while riding than some, too.
