The Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge crosses Lady Bird Lake just east of Lamar Blvd. Accessible from the hike and bike trail, the most convenient parking is the short block of West 2nd St. between Seaholm Dr. and Lamar Blvd. The bridge too brightly lit for many targets, but provides great downtown backdrops for nightscape photography. It is also an excellent location for urban outreach sidewalk astronomy. There is a constant parade of people open to good views and a little interesting conversation.
