Another Bridge to FindSeptember 3, 2008
A trio of hardy 13th Colonists made a long trek (6.5km each way) on foot into the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (known to locals as the Seymour Demonstration Forest) to find yet another Battlestar Galactica shooting location from Season One.
This is a picture from the episode “Six Degrees of Separation” where Helo and Sharon hide on one of the pylons of a bridge while Centurions pass by above them.
This is a picture we took of the Spur 4 bridge, which we were directed to by one of the park rangers. (Note: showing regular people screen shots using a cool gadget like an iPod Touch makes it seem much less geeky and illicits a better response than just asking.) The railing on the bridge is different, but is obviously a recent addition.
The kicker is, the way the bridge was integrated into the scene in the show, we thought it should have a bunch of red pillars beneath it. Clearly it does not. So, we still have one more bridge to find, likely close by.
I sense more long hikes in my future.
