That Cottonwood tree was massive! It was also a very beautiful tree. I figured that it might have to be cut down one of these days. I was always a little bit worried about the roots of that tree trying to undermine the foundation and the wing walls of the bridge. Of course, the tree might have been dying as it was a very old tree.
The trunk of the tree was only a couple feet from the wing wall. The stairs by the bridge were wedged between the wing wall and the tree. This made for a nice photo opportunity.
Stone arch bridge built 1899 according to plaque.
Little sign on Rust Rd. is the only way I was aware of this one - very cool story - Apparently a gigantic tree that is written about on the plaque was cut down recently , very sad, must have been a behemoth
This is a photo that I took of the Stone Arch Bridge in Cloud County in May.
What a beautiful bridge! I love it!!!!
Masonry at it's finest!
I like this little bridge.
