A Lightless Sundial Bridge

By Steve DuBois

I was on the north side of the Sundial Bridge Friday night when the lights went out. The partial moon was out, which provided some light, that is, when it wasn’t behind a cloud.
Lights were on in the area on the south side of the bridge, at its entrance. But the bridge itself and all trail lights on the north side were out.  There weren’t any signs there letting people know the bridge would be dark.  So I’m wondering if it was sudden.
I asked security what the problem is and was told they didn’t know for sure.  But they said they did know they’d be out until Monday.
So if you plan to visit the Sundial Bridge one evening this weekend, bring flashlights.

He created a photo book of his dogs especially for the children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where he donated several copies. He loves that the kids enjoy seeing his dogs photographed in unusual ways. Steve says his dogs have been his photographic inspiration and motivation, but sometimes he tries his hand at nature shots, such as the photos he captured of the north state’s 2017 flooding, published here on A News Cafe.com.

    What an awesome picture.  Would almost expect a Stephen King novel to follow.

      Thanks, Cheyenne.  It was so ominus to see it dark like that.   Very strange.  It had mystique, intrigue.  If the lights are indeed out tonight, as the security guard said they would be, check it out.  That’s not something you experience everyday.
