Geocache Description:

"Van Gogh Bridge is a wooden footbridge linking the Washington Plaza with the Waterview Cluster at the Lake Anne Village Center. Set along a running route through Lake Anne Plaza, this bridge was inspired by its namesake’s famous paintings of Arles, France. It was added to encourage residents to be outdoors as well as connect residential Reston with commercial buildings, schools, and playgrounds. Although a marvelous site year-round, Van Gogh Bridge is most captivating in the springtime as its surrounding trees create beautiful blooms reminiscent of the famous Dutch artist’s light and colorful masterpieces." — Initative for Public Art Reston

Today the bridge is a popular spot for formal photographs and casual selfies. Of course it also serves it’s practical intent—to provide a beautiful and walkable lakefront path for Reston residents and visitors.

BYOP. This could be a high muggle area, so stealth is a must. When you find it, don't get too overly excited and drop it in the water. :) I'm making this a daytime only cache due to the bridge's proximity to homes nearby. Make sure to look around and take in the beautiful view from the bridge! PLEASE REPLACE EXACTLY AS FOUND AND NO SPOILERY PICS!
