Day 181 - Bridges
We had our end of year staff BBQ last night. The weather was not terribly cooperative changing every 5 minutes so we ended up inside for the festivities. When we left, the weather had cleared up and the sun was getting ready to set. The view from the parking lot was beautifully clear as we looked off towards Quebec City's two bridges, the Pierre Laporte Bridge and the Quebec Bridge. The old Quebec Bridge is the longest cantilever bridge in North America. It's the darker coloured bridge in the foreground. While you can't see all of the bridges' architecture from these pictures, I really liked the clarity and contrast of the old and new above the tree line.
