Fox Crossing

At first glance, you probably are thinking that this doesn’t qualify for my “small bridge” series. But take another look, as we have nested bridges over the Fox River. Above us is I-90 in Elgin, Illinois. They rebuilt this entire structure recently, and I love that the State of Illinois nested a pedestrian and bike crossing into it. One of these days I’ll figure out the perfect day and time to get that shadow cast to perfectly cross the squares in the void. But for now, I’ll settle for this one.

Tip: Just south of this spot is an excellent put in for kayaks, and I often enter the fox here and paddle upstream.
