Bridge to Nowhere Photo

Bridge to Nowhere photo, Ketchikan, Alaska.

Last summer while I was in Ketchikan, I hiked up the hill above town to get a better perspective of the destination for the “Bridge to Nowhere”.  I never did anything with this photo, once the funding was lost and the project fell out of the news, the image had little value.  Now, thanks to recent news events, this image just may have a life after all. 

This is looking from Ketchikan across the Tongass Narrows to Gravina Island, the destination of the bridge.  The little bit of development you do see on Gravina Island is the Ketchikan Airport, currently serviced by a ferry.  It seems like a small gap for such an expensive bridge, but this is the same channel the cruise ships use to enter town, so I imagine it would have had to be a very tall bridge.
