Tillicum Bridge

The Gorge is bridged in a number of places but its narrowest width is crossed by the Tillicum Bridge pictured above and below. The Gorge here is very narrow. The direction of water flow changes with the tide and it is sometimes called "reversing falls" and has a very strong current here. Protected in a fenced off area to the right beneath the bridge is large midden - the refuse of many centuries of shellfish harvesting here by First Nations People.

It's quite a pretty bridge!

That must be where the Harbour tour stopped; he said it's like a small tidal bore, a mini 'bay of Fundy', if you will.
