Seasonal Plank Bridge

The Swiftcurrent Pass Trail in Glacier National Park doesn't cross many rivers or streams, but this is one of them. The suspension bridge shown here is seasonal - Glacier National Park crews install the bridge as soon as the snow melts away and take it down usually by late September or early October. The bridge is removed due to snow - this area can get pounded by heavy snows in the winter, which could destroy the "hikers bridge" if left up year round. Swiftcurrent Mountain is the tall mountain in this photograph, and forms part of the Continental Divide.
