June 22 2013 A Day Trip To Alexandria Bridge.

The sun was supposed to be shining today so we headed out to Alexandria Bridge north of Hope, BC ( ) in hopes of finding Nashville Warblers.  The sun wasn't shining but we did find Nashvilles and a few other birds.  The bridge crosses the Fraser River and it is still acceptable to walk across it.  It was originally built in 1861 to facilitate traffic for the Cariboo gold rush.  The present bridge was rebuilt on the same site in 1923 and decommissioned in 1964.  We were there for about an hour and were surprized at how many people walk down to the bridge.
