P&SVRR - Deer Creek Bridge

Photos 

Overview

NOTE: If you visit this bridge, be warned that there is a hornet nest the size of a duffel bag underneath the bridge, so the hornets have basically assumed ownership of this structure. One of them stung me when I tried to take a picture of the bridge structure from underneath.
