Some RVers are fascinated by bridges. They may take a week or so visiting covered bridges in New England. We knew one “retired” bridge engineer who made it a major point in this life to photograph as many unusual bridges he could find. While some bridges are “off limits” to pedestrian traffic–for obvious reasons, like oncoming trains–there is one bridge in Montana that’s off limits to pedestrians and vehicles alike. Animals only, mate!
This “animal bridge” is over Highway 93 near Evaro, Montana on the Salish-Kootenai Indian Reservation. If you happen to know the local jargon, you’ll find a lot of signs in this area written for non-English speakers. Somehow we doubt the local animals pay much attention to either the Native or English print, the bridge is their free pass across a busy highway that might otherwise spell, R-O-A-D-K-I-L-L.
