Wishing There Was a Prettier Word for Culvert

Even concrete can't withstand the persistent green fingers of nature in the Pacific Northwest.

This was taken under the Interurban Trail under the bridge between Fairhaven Park and Marine Park.

  2. I agree, this photo deserves a prettier name than culvert....how about aqua duct? or sluice? Sluice is only slightly better than culvert though. I think I'll just think of it as a water fall. :)

  3. I understand that is part of a fish ladder for migrating salmon. Nature has done a fine job of decoration. Love the photo.

  6. Personally, I think it is great, but then again, I'm from the business world and appreciate man's efforts to control the environment to some extent.
