Cannon Creek Bridge

I spend many years all around this bridge! I love it and respect it. Many many children have spent hours there looking down into the creek from the bridge and of course many more hours playing in the water under the bridge.

If you have any questions about the bridge, I will give you my version of this bridge!

I re-visited this bridge 23 July 2008. It's in really good conditon for being almost 80 years old.
