An overgrown bridge and a tree

This deep, steep-sided valley contains a little stream that flows into Naka River. This bridge appears to be completely overgrown. I could not tell whether it was still usable or not. It is possible that the paved path that I was on is more convenient than the old bridge so it may have just fallen into disuse.
Trees are so sad looking in the winter. Each fall the gardeners trim almost all of the growth from the previous summer, so there are almost no small branches. Doing this keeps the trees from grown and most of all it keeps the roots from growing and disturbing the flat ground. This trimming is particularly common in parks and along roadsides.
