When I drove through to Golden, BC, a few weeks back the new bridge was mostly built but not open. This meant I got to drive underneath it on the old highway. It's really very impressive to look up and see this huge thing towering above you. The photo on the CBC's site doesn't give a sense of scale -- the bridge is extremely high and those are very substantial pillars holding it up. Once you're on the bridge it'll probably look rather less impressive which is a bit sad. While the old road through the pass is quite beautiful, I would agree that it's treacherous and needed to be replaced.

I shot a documentary in August of 207 and posted a number of stills I took between Calgary and Vancouver including some of the new bridge at Kicking Horse Pass

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
