No reflection at Ponte della Maddalena

The river is as low as I have ever seen it under the Ponte della Maddalena at Borgo a Mozzano, on the way to Bagni di Lucca. I have been coming here now for almost 20 years.

This is the view I usually see.

This is what it looks like now.

From the other side.

From the top.

On a brighter note the vegetation is growing back on the site of the landslide.

We have had some rain recently but it will take a lot more to bring the river back to its usual level.

Update on the landslide at the Ponte della Maddalena

A few months ago there was a landslide near the Ponte Maddalena in Borgo a Mozzano, on the road to and from Bagni di Lucca. The road was closed for sometime while the fallen rocks and soil was cleared and the road reinforced.

Here is a photo I took of earlier work on the landslide.

The work continues and recently I climbed to the top of the bridge to see the workmen on the hillside.


The view from the top of the bridge is spectacular.

I hope those men and their equipment are securely tied to something sturdy!
