Photographs of the Bridges of Harris County…and Rest of Texas

There are only so many pictures of holiday decorations that I can stand so I wanted to get out and take a picture of something else. There isn’t a whole lot going on though with people traveling for the holidays and such so I decided to hunting for a new subject. Bill Coats Bike Bridge in Hermann Park dubbed “The Bridge to Somewhere” is brand new so I thought I’d venture out there on Christmas eve and take a picture of it. How exciting can a bridge look though? Actually, for a small bridge, it’s not bad at all and is up there with my favorite bridge pictures (yes, that’s a thing for me).

So here is the last picture I took.

The bridge is surprisingly stable and didn’t vibrate even with people running on it.

Here is another view earlier And a nice view of the Mosiac Condos whose residents undoubtedly use this bridge.
