Broken Bridge


I took this photo several days ago, this bridge names "断桥",literally "broken-bridge", it has a long fairy tale in it. I guess some of you might have heard of this tale before, um..."The white snake"
The hero meet the heroin on this bridge...
Can you have a guess why it's named "broken bridge"? It has sth to do with the snow...

I had no answers to your questions, but I checked on the net and found a possible explanation to the "broken bridge": the snow smelts first on one side of the bridge. As that also you answer?

As for the white snake, I believe it has something to do with a snake having taken a human form - a woman?
