Four Mile Creek Bridge

It is truly amazing how these bridges can hide right under people's nodes. I have had people tell me about bridges that I had driven right past (or over) without knowing of their significance or existence.

when I was a kid growing up in rural Butler county I crossed this bridge every day on a school bus I had no idea that it was a stone arch bridge.

Well, it is good to know that these bridges are appreciated. I have to laugh at some communities that advertise everything about themselves except for their historic bridges. They are truly an underrated attraction.

Last Sunday [ 4-11-10 ] I went taking pictures of bridges with my sister. We went to Four Mile Creek and Polecat Creek Bridge. We looked for Henry Creek Bridge, ran out of time and did not find it. Anyway I wanted to thank you and everyone that has helped keep them. I have not enjoyed a day better in years, than the one I had on sunday shooting pictures of these wonderfull Bridges. I hope to go again real soon!

Great photo, Mike. I will have to put this bridge on my list of places to visit when I am in the Wichita area.
