Self Creek US 70 Bridge
Posted February 12, 2007, by Fred Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge on 03 Feb 2007 at 2:00 pm. Good pictures can be taken from the east or west ends and also from the adjacent marina.

This brige is poetry in motion as its spans loop accross Self Creek. Reminds me of a Slinky "walking" across the floor. Lake Greeson's water level was up when I visited.

Lake water was clean and blue and a couple of miles down Hwy 70 where the Little Missouri River enters Lake Greeson, there is a pretty Corps of Engineers campground named Star of the West.
