I took a little drive down to where the Arkansas River runs through Pueblo. This footbridge was erected to give the residents better access to the fishing along the river banks.
The water level is way down in the river, but I'm willing to bet its higher than it was in recent years. The drought hit Colorado hard. We had a decent winter and a damp spring, but we still need a lot of rain this summer to keep from drying out again.
A railway bridge spans the river nearby. I wanted a picture of a train crossing but to be honest I don't even know if this track is still in use because not a single train passed through during the hour we were there.
There was a drastic difference in the temperature from out in the open to the shade on the trail beneath the tracks. I could happily have stayed there all day but the girls had places to go and things to see.
