Burnt Creek Bridge
Posted January 11, 2017, by Nick Schmiedeler

This one has almost been abandoned 60 years now on Old Highway 54, absolutely solid, identical to the one that replaced it just a few hundred yards to the north on new Highway 54, only more narrow. A really neat jungle atmosphere around this one, very pretty creek underneath.
