Bridge over the Jordan River

This is a rather mid-town view of another bridge that goes over the Jordan River…the waterway that spans the entire Salt Lake Valley…coming north from Utah Lake in Utah County, by Provo and Orem…slicing through the more than fifty miles of its course and emptying into the Great Salt Lake at the far northwestern end of the city.  I’ve mentioned before that there is a walkway that parallels the river for much of the way…a nice inner-city refuge for the individual seeking some quiet time closer to nature, but not away and out in the mountains.  There is a golf course off to the left and neighborhoods to the right and directly ahead in the image.  If you like photos of bridges, you can go to the bottom of the page and click on the Categories widget and find the selection for Bridges…which will provide a rolling page of all the posts I’ve provided over the years that contain bridges….

    • It is a very nice place to walk…sunsets can be pretty cool here, too.

  2. I seem to remember folks saying that the Jordan had the distinction of being one of the few rivers that ran north. No idea how accurate that is.

  3. I love rivers and spend a lot of time near them. This one must be welcome on hot summer days.

    • I don’t know how often people actually take a dip into it, Allen…I have heard of and seen people canoeing in it, though….

  4. I’ll have to post a picture of our Jordan River for you… one of these days. I’m thinking of putting a bit more emphasis on the pictures for a while. I’ve seen a few pics now, from your Jordan River. Looks good.

    • I would enjoy that, Shimon…the name-sake of our river. And, while I don’t know your motivation for putting more emphasis on the pictures for a while, I do understand how one needs to be in the right emotional place for words…. Wishing you well…..
