Selkirk Trestle

After passing under the Bay Street Bridge, the Gorge widens into what is called the Selkirk Waters. Here it is bridged by a restored railway bridge called the Selkirk Trestle. The trestle is part of the Galloping Goose Regional Trail and its use is limited to cyclists and pedestrians. At this point the Gorge leaves the industrial area behind (only small boats can pass beneath the trestle) and from here on it passes through residential areas. The photo below is taken just upstream of the trestle from a small park near where I live called Banfield Park.

Well, both of those photos are perfectly serene and inviting. I want to ride my new bike across the trestle someday.

You must admit, the reflections of autumn colors makes winter worth having, now doesn't it? 8^)

These photos are absolute perfection, Benjamin. I notice others are using "perfect" in their comments. I noticed that after I thought of the word, though. I was being original, really. At least I thought I was...
