The glass bridge in on the Sculpture Trail at Cheekwood. Pammie is peaking at me around the edge as Mz. Bubbles is engrossed in thought.
These gentlemen were measuring the bridge as they had been commissioned to clean it and they needed to build a scalp.
This photo is how it looks on the inside. The following photo shows how you can see space in between the glass columns.

This is looking straight up at the ceiling of the bridge.
This photo and the next are looking back over the bridge to where we had come along on the trail.
The trail to the bridge was rather narrow and steep. I suggest you wear tennis shoes as I had on flip flop.
This the plaque that tells who the Artist was and who gave it to the Garden.
The Kitty Justice is that Cinderella had glass slippers but Cheekwood has a Glass Bridge.

Dear Dianne ~~ Loved the glass bridge and your photos of it.
Thank you so much for your comments
about the Senior demanding her Sunday paper and the CEO story. We need more honest men and women in our world. And definitely in our
governments. Sorry you missed out on that e mail. I wish you enough my friend, Love Merle.

Thank you so much. You always make me feel good about my photo efforts. The bridge is a nice surprise along the Sculpture Trail but I wish it was more accessible for older and impaired folks. Also it would be nice if had been placed closer to electrical points to light it different colors and to have events there, like weddings etc. Peace

Betsy
Glad you liked the bridge as it took me 2 tries to find it. Finally, I just asked. Should have done that the first time. Peace

I was impressed by this glass bridge and cannot wait to go back to see it after the men have cleaned it. Peace

MB
It is a nice find and I plan to go back and walk the whole trail as it has other sculptures I wish to see. Peace

Merle
