Red Bridge, Keremeos, BC

There are very few covered bridges in Canada and
Keremeos is home to one of them.
I've never seen a covered bridge before and
profess to not even knowing British Columbia
was home to one.
The Red Bridge in Keremeos spans the
Similkameen River, was built in 1907 as a railroad
bridge, and is used today as a highway bridge taking
traffic to the Ashnola Valley.
The Red Bridge can be seen from quite a ways along the highway if
you know where to look. Well, I am pretty snoopy
when it comes to traveling, and have a look at
everything-everywhere. I don't want to miss
anything that might be interesting. I must be very annoying
to travel with.

There is an interesting plaque at the
bridge describing how the original 5 bridges were
used during the heydey of mining in the area.

The Similkameen Valley has become a fast favorite
of mine. It's incredibly beautiful,
full of history and has untold mysteries
waiting to be discovered.
