Powderface Trail

This is a backcountry single lane gravel and rocky road west of Calgary that runs for about thirty five miles. The bridge in the picture was washed out in the floods of June to July 2013. It looks like this newer bridge is supported by a large steel I-beam and is meant to withstand any future flooding. Some government agency spent a fair amount of money to put this bridge in. I think it would have been a minor challenge to bring the bridge materials in since this is a narrow winding twisting road. At the time this was taken October 26, 2014 you could forgo the bridge entirely and easily drive across the creek. The woods were crawling with hunters so I understandably did not see any wildlife.
