A cedar towering over the edge of the Trent River valley. It's very difficult to get a good view of the Trent, because the precipitous slope is covered in dense second growth -- cedar, Douglas-fir, alder, and bigleaf maple. I like the fluted buttresses where this tree grips the edge.
Not far downstream from this place, the railway from the Cumberland collieries to Union Bay crossed over the valley. In 1898 the trestle collapsed with the loss of seven lives, including those of several hitchhikers. One man working on the foundations of a new bridge nearby saw his brother killed.
