Steep Climb 
#googlestreetview #puzzle

Can you find this bridge in Google Street View? If yes, please visit Fun and Games section of New Google Earth Community Forums  (http://googleearthcommunity.proboards.com/thread/960/steep-climb) and post your answer there. Clues and answer will also be posted in that Forum.

New Google Earth Community Forums is an alternative to Google Earth Community (GEC) which has been frozen by Google w.e.f. May 1st. The new Google Earth Community Forum is similar to the original forum and is run by the same group of volunteer Google Earth enthusiasts who have been instrumental in creating and maintaining the original GEC.

Fun & Games forum is a fun place to post mystery locations and/or  pose riddles about events and places from around the World. This forum provides a stimulus to brain and keeps the grey cells active specially for old retired people like me. I strongly recommend this for those who have time and penchant for solving puzzles, but a word of warning – it is highly addictive. Finding the answer is 90% perspiration (research) and 10% inspiration but it is pure 100% joy and sense of exhilaration.
GSV Please! Linked Clue - I found this while trying to solve "An Amazing view #3" by hhgygy (which I have yet to solve :-[).

Thanks for pointing out that cultural difference, as a 'teapot' search in (English) Google Images clearly shows another type that's more familiar in the rest of the world.

About the sprout.. (And according to my own POV...) If water flows past the leaves / tea residue it should provide more flavour than water that doesn't pass past the leaves.

Not sure if this has been done in the older GEC or not. The imagery however is old. Historical (Dec. 2003) GE View please! May not be easy, so clue, if needed, will be given in 3-4 hours.

Story
Introduction
I have spent major part of my service career spanning about 38 years, in Designs, Erection, Testing and Commissioning of Automation/Sequential Control of large capacity, Coal fired Thermal Power Plants.

At senior level I was in-charge of Reform Action Group created under the aegis of World Bank to suggest ways and means of improving the Power Sector of the State of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Post retirement I was also Advisor to the State Government on Power Sector reforms.

I am now hooked on to Google Earth and was an active member of (now frozen) Google Earth Community (GEC) where I had made more than 5000 posts under the pseudonym of CuriousJM. (List of Major Posts).

GEC was frozen by Google on May 1, 2015 and I am now an active member of it's successor Google Earth Community Forums.

I am also one of the curator of +Artistic Google album of Google+ and am actively involved in creating digitally modified images of Google Street Views which are shared in Google+. My creations can be seen in this Album or in my Google+ Collections as well as in my blog: Google Street View Art

I have three blogs based on Google Earth and Google Street Views. These are;

First two of the above blogs got a mention in the  One World Many Stories released by Google to mark the occasion of one billion downloads of Google Earth.
Bragging rights
More than 28 Million (and counting) views in Google+. This number shows how many times my contents have been seen by other people, including my Photos, Posts etc.
