Artist's Description

Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
Canon EOS Rebel T4i; Canon 18-200mm lens @130mm
Photoshop CS5 Nik filters and Texture by Anna Lenebem

Built in 1907-1909
Not only is it the world’s longest and highest railway trestle, but it may be the toughest, too.

There are no restrictions on the length or weight of the mile-long freight trains that roll across the Lethbridge Viaduct a dozen times a day, even though the bridge celebrated its 100th birthday in September 2009.

The High Level Crossing, as it is commonly known in Southern Alberta, is slightly more than a mile long at 5,331 feet and soars 314 feet above the Old Man River, which flows through a deep ravine on the west side of Lethbridge.

When the bridge opened for traffic in September 1909, its first transit was made by 100 townsfolk walking across on the railway ties.
