TPW Crooked Creek Bridge

Photo 

North side as seen from US 24

Poor photo, but US 24 is busy and there are no nearby pulloffs so stopping is out of the question. 4 Students in a school bus were killed just West of here when hit by dump trucks trying to avoid a scooter stopped in road so now you understand why it's dangerous. Very hilly. I will try and get a better pic later as I know the landowner on other side of rail line.
