I took this while walking through Ravenna, a neighborhood named for the enormous canyon that runs through it. There are other bridges that span the ravine, but this is the loveliest. Built in 1913, this span has been closed to all but bicycle and pedestrian traffic since 1975. It is a great vantage point to view Ravenna Park which is always active with runners and walkers along its creek-side trails and staircases. You can view more bridges from all over at Louis la Vache's "Sunday Bridges" meme.
