Little Salt Creek Bridge

Actually this is Henderson Creek which flows aprox. a half-mile downstream into Little Salt Creek just upstream from the S.R.446 Bridge. It is still standing in its original condition as of today (12-26-11). It must still be a strong bridge because as I drove by it a very large farm implement was crossing it.

Sorry about the less than stellar pics. It was a spur-of-the-moment shoot and I didn't have boots on. Even had to borrow a camera. Anyway, I think it's obvious why this became Humpback Bridge Road.
