Fourmile Creek Bridge
Posted April 22, 2018, by Nick Schmiedeler (nick [at] nickschmiedeler [dot] com)

looks like odd mix of old and older....lattice looks older than this bridge, but way it's attached looks original - neat one that my GPS says is in fact technically in OK, but whatever - on State Line Rd. (aka Treece Rd.), not much traffic here, not much anything here
