Red Bridge

There is a covered bridge spanning a rushing stream that marks the boundary between Whistler’s Upper Village and the Village itself.  The city fathers have wisely installed colored lights that change over time and that serve to make the covered bridge even more visually interesting than it would be otherwise.

Tonight when we crossed the bridge it was red, accentuating the geometric pattern of the bridge and its supports.  The red color gave the bridge a decidedly devilish appearance and made it seem like the entrance to Hell in Dante’s Inferno — except was no sign proclaiming:  “Abandon Hope, All Ye Who Enter Here.”
