Bridge elevation

During my ride today I was going around the Renton airport and I usually cross a bridge that spans the Cedar River. But today, it was standing on hydraulic stilts to allow the flood waters to flow under it.

Then I rode around the airport to the other side of the airport park and looked at the bridge crossing where the Cedar River empties into Lake Washington. I was watching the flood water flow under the bridge when I happened to look down and saw a crane standing beside me.

I took the pictures, retraced my steps up the hill and the crane did not move.

I'm always delighted when I see something extraordinary on an ordinary ride.
