NOTE: This page, and especially the photos, are from the time of the Walk, when the Web and digital photography was young. Even though the pictures were small and low resolution, internet access was slow and this page could take most of a minute to load. 4 of these thumbnail pictures can be clicked on to see the "full sized" pictures! The available screens were also small and low resolution, most were monochrome.

The camera was on loan from Eastman Kodak. It was a DC20, Kodak's first consumer level digital camera, after an unsuccessful one designed by Kodak and sold by Apple 2 years earlier. Internal memory held 8 0.2 megapixel, 493 x 373 pixel pictures or 16 of these 320 x 240 ones, $299! And had a short battery life.

The original Bridge Walk was in 1994 to raise money to fix, or if need be to replace, the stone arch culvert on the then new Auburn Trail, a single track hiking trail. After raising $10,000, we found that would not cover even the engineering study. Later the Auburn Trail was upgraded to the multi-use trail we now have with funds for it, including the long steel bridge, from the Federal and Town governements together with volunteer labor from VHT. The '96 Bridge Walk went to the east of the Village toward Farmington on the Auburn Trail.
