Highway 101 - the viaduct at Bridge's Creek

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 26 November 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This view shows our roadway (upper right) above the South Fork of the Eel River. You sense being in the middle of nowhere through here. The nearest town is Piercy, California - which has a population of 193, is about eleven kilometers ( 7 miles) to the north, and is tucked in a little valley to the west of the highway.

It's a beautiful panorama. It's a pity the series is ended, because here there is a great opportunity for many good pictures. Well done, in any case.

Very nice composition - I like the juxtaposition of the viaduct and the river bend.

Rui from Leiria, Portugal

Really impressive. We have to search the road to see it.
This kind of "road abandonment" takes to a bigger isolation of small towns, that were already small, and that will be forgotten in time...
Great series. And I agree with Alun, something to preserve to be shown in the years to come.

A wonderful finale Stephen, the old road looks puny amidst those dense pine forests. I have a mountain road in my archive, I'll post it.

@Observing: Bring it on, Mike. And thanks.
