Bridge in Context

We observed that nature and humanity are very much in a partnership along the parkway.  It is hard to say which predominates.  If we quit mowing and trimming, Nature would predominate along the Yahara River parkway.  Yet the very existence of a river instead of a wetland shows human engineering and care.  The river as we see it between the lakes came about from dredging and a locks placed in 1905.

The scene I chose to paint illustrates this.
