(My solo road trip of western Canada – Friday 2nd October)
After the truly blissful wonders of Emerald Lake, along my way was something called ‘Natural Bridge’. I so wanted to see this, the Kicking Horse River over time has simply carved its beautiful artistry out of this ancient rock, and what I saw was incredible, what has been created is something very special. The astonishing thing is, these various formations we see now are constantly changing as a result of the waters brute force. There will come a time when these formations will no longer be here as they will transition and manifest into other formations, eventually, the bridge will no longer be able to withstand the power of nature that allows it to display itself now.
There are so many different vantage points to see this amazing formation from, every angle leaves you in total admiration and respect of the power of water and what it can do, no matter what comes before it, no matter what lies before it, it will have to submit to the continuous, gentle caressing yet powerful demands of the water. There are times you cannot believe what you are seeing, the corrosive force of the water is as if a sculpture has deliberately been moulded and the landscape is the artists pride and joy as onlookers behold its splendid beauty.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the Natural Bridge is that it was formerly a waterfall! I have added photos of information that were present at the site to give a better understanding of what is going on.
