Daily Post Photo Challenge – Atop

Sometimes the view from atop is not as good.

The road the goes north-south through Idaho from Lewiston to Boise has been improved a lot over the years. One section that used to go through a windy canyon criss-crossed by several beautiful railroad trestles.

Now the road stays above the canyon but there is a historical site to remind us of the railroad trestles and of the history of Lawyers Canyon.

This is the trestle you can see from that stop, very striking, I admit.

State 17 001

But if you take the old road, you find one of the WOODEN trestles that was truly the charm of that beautiful windy canyon road.

State 17 661

And there are several other wooden trestle beauties, if you keep you eyes peeled, on what is still the main road, but I guess that is a secondary canyon that they haven’t figured out how to by-pass, yet.

In this case, I think the view from the bottom is better than the view from atop.
