That is nice. They have a wooden pony truss in Jasper, GA that this bridge reminds me of.

You're right, it really is something completely different. It's so decorative and relatively elaborate. I wonder why they bothered with such an elaborate wooden structure in what seems like a relatively remote area. If it was down-town, I could see it, but out there...why bother? Interesting.
