This is part VI of my series of photo blogs detailing my recent trip to the Reno/Sparks area.
These shots were all taken the afternoon of August 1 in the Plesant Valley area, south of Reno. North of Washoe Lake (Washoe Valley to Mount Rose Highway), I-580 is almost completed along the western hillsides of Pleasant Valley. The new freeway will include seven bridges between Reno and Washoe Valley, including the Galena Creek Bridge. This 1,725-foot Bridge with a 689-foot span over Galena Creek is reportedly the largest cathedral arch bridge in the world.
|Slide Mountain Ski Resort can be seen above the bridge.|
As always, clicking on the photos will bring up larger, higher quality versions.
