A Special Story - How Our Photos Can Resurrect Good Memories of the Good Ol Days! "The Bridge"

Some of you may remember my post where I shared a tour and some photos of a day trip in March 2008 to Canyon Lake and Tortilla Flats.

I enjoyed sharing the experience and the photographs, and pretty much forgot about them. - until yesterday. I received an email from someone who happened upon my article and the bridges at Canyon Lake - there are two, but I took a photo of only one. I've shared his email so all of us can be reminded that: we never know who is watching! In real life, we never know who is watching us and reading what we say or viewing the picture we share. As a parent, this has always been something about which I've been cognizant and tried to be a good example. But I digress: Here is his email:

Tortilla Flats - Canyon Country, Arizona - BridgeHe entitled this: "My Bridge"

"I want to thank you for including the photo of the Bridge on Canyon Lake. These two bridges were my favorite diving bridges in the summer of 1959. I drove all the way from San Bernardino, CA with a friend several times to camp near the bridge, and go diving. We did a lot of night diving, pitch black, and would climb to the top on the trusses and dive. We would also race across the bridge underneath the bridge at night.

Great memories, and thanks again."

 

 

I was so tickled when I read what he had to say, and it took me back to those years in the 50's which reminded me to write the article about Oak Creek Canyon and Slide Rock. Childhood memories can be among the very best, AND we never know who is: watching us, reading what we have to say. AND we never know what impact it can/will have on others.

I've shared a picture of just the bridge...maybe he'll see this! I shudder to think, as a mom, of my son jumping off in the dark - but, after all, isn't that what kids do? I think the next time I'm up that way, I'll take a photo of the other bridge too. ;-)
