Some of the sheet lightning from a couple of nights ago

This was captured on my GoPro left sitting in the window taking a picture every 30 seconds.  There were others but not as good as this one.

Trip to Hedlund marsh to photograph the floating bridge

The Hedlund marsh is west of Gowganda on highway 560 about 5km on the north side of the road.  There is a culvert crossing the road where the creek runs down to Gowganda Lake.  Years ago there was a wood bridge that crossed the marsh.  Later on the road was straitened and graveled, now it is asphalt.  Here are some pictures of the road bridge and bits and pieces of a small wood bridge going north up towards MacIntosh Lake.  Nearby is a log cabin that is claimed to be owned by L.O. Hedlund back around 1920 where he prospected.
