Rumsey Bridge

Just off Highway 16 between Esparto and Highway 20 there is a bridge I've been catching a glimpse of on my way to Redwood Valley for years. This trip I finally pulled off the highway and discovered that the Ramsey Bridge across Cache Creek is spectacular!

It was built in 1940 and has two sets of elegant arches.

Sorry to say there was unfortunate graffiti on some of the spans.

The blue sky was the perfect backdrop to the bridge.

Each set of pillars frames a different gorgeous view of the Cache Creek.

More, elegant, small arches decorate the spans of the whole bridge.

And heading back to the highway.......

Happy Trails!
