This bridge is on my Grandparents Land. Every year we try to have our family photo taken on this bridge. I was married a few years ago and had Wedding pic's taken on this brigde. It's an important part of our history.

How sad it is when we forget these beautiful bridges.I like nothing better than to spend a day down on ours and help out the DOT by cleaning up litter then sit on the walkway and meditate.
