Right - Facing south towards the Quinte Skyway on Hwy 49 near Deseronto. The Quinte Skyway is one of two high-level bridges connecting the mainland to the island municipality of Prince Edward County. The other structure is the Norris Whitney (Belleville Bay) Bridge on Hwy 62. The tangential alignment of Hwy 49 across the Quinte Skyway and the lack of reference points on the horizon gives the false illusion that the skyway merely "ends" in mid-air.
