Although I escape from the bridgey desert that is Battle Mountain yesterday, it wasn't a very good day for bridges.  Today, though, had a few more bridgey delights on offer.

US-40 over an arm of the Starvation Reservoir near Duchesne UT

P9170005 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

These two are the bridge carrying US-191 over an arm of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir on the Green River in northern Utah


P9170007 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Employees-only footbridge over US-191 at Flaming Gorge Dam


P9170010 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Not sure whether this is actually a bridge or not, but it looks like one.  It carries US-191 between the Flaming Gorge Dam and the rest of Utah.

P9180036 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Last night's hotel had its own private bridge across the Porter Canal, Idaho Falls ID


P9180037 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

US-20 across the Snake River, Idaho Falls ID.  I think we had this one in 2016 too.


P9180048 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr


P9180049 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

These two are the bridge carrying the road to Bayhorse Ghost Town and Bayhorse Lake over the Salmon River near Challis ID


P9180050 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Out-of-focus bridge across the Salmon River, near nowhere much at all, Idaho


P9180051 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr


P9180052 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Above two are the bridge carrying a mine access road across the Salmon River in an even more remote bit of Idaho


P9180061 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

ID-55 across the South Fork of the Payette River, Banks ID


P9180062 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Access road to Highways Department depot across the North Fork of the Payette River, Banks ID


P9180064 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

McCall "bypass" over North Fork of the Payette River, McCall ID


P9180065 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr


P9180066 by Mr Larrington, on Flickr

Final two are of the US-95 bridge across the Salmon River south of White Bird ID.  The Salmon River makes a gert big loop through the mountains so it got encountered twice today.

I find myself intrigued by the numerous signs fixed to the smaller bridges. Some are superfluous "One lane bridge" well you can see that, and others are written out so that if you need to see them, you probably don't have time to read them "Trucks slow to 3 mph". Whirr!
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Railroad road bridge over, I think, AB-6 in southern Alberta.  Five shiny Canadian dollars to anyone who can replace the graffiti with "M Khan is bent".

That's probably the lot for this year's road trip as I can see the terminal buildings of Calgary airport out of the window and am not planning to take off into the countryside tomorrow, because there isn't any.

A decorated concrete bridge over the railway somewhere in Swindon. I think it's the Kemble line.

I think I may have posted this bridge over the Ythan before, but you're getting it again as it required a bit of comedy off-roading to get there  :)

Perhaps next time I visit family I will borrow Mater's motorcar and visit them myself to take a few photographs.

Caine Road Bridge was built in 1986 in honor of Ashtabula County's 175th anniversary.

So this pleasant but not massively remarkable bridge is the home of the one-piece crankset?

My grate frend Marieke seems to have a Crinklyesque Thing about covered bridges, which is a difficult Thing to sate when you live on the edge of Amsterdam.  I've only bagged three myself, one in each of Vermont, Illinois and Oregon.

That is rather splendid, isn't it?

Also, does that mean that we've arrived at a point where ppl who don't frequent the forum are starting to spot bridges for CrinklyLion (and everyone else!)?

Marieke could try Schwäbisch Hall. There are several and it's nearer than Oregon.

The word for these is 'Steg (m)'.

Or this rather pointless one leading to a church in Poland. Or possibly the Czech Republic.

The Hamburg one was in amongst a whole bunch of photos Professor L posted on Farcebok, so I nicked it and put it on here.

Is that an odd cement mixer, a piece of fairground equipment or military hardware on the left? I'm guessing military from the colour.
