Prairie Spirit Rail Trail - Deer Creek Bridge
Posted January 21, 2017, by Nick Schmiedeler

Yow!! This old railroad bridge is pretty awesome. Actually think the tagging adds to the beauty of it, but that's just me. Very very long bridge converted to the trail path..... fun experience hanging out at this one
