Still a beauty in the trees. Will be fun to get some shots in the fall or winter with this one!
Many of the undiscovered bridges in Kansas are probably going to be smaller bridges over smaller streams, but many of them may be highly significant. Many of the old, lightweight, trusses are quite good at hiding in the trees for decades.
Haha Robert, no.... I have been trying to focus on previously unphotographed bridges, and also those in "unknown" status though, but really those are few and far between anymore, you knocked out many of them, and it may be just a coincidence but a few of those unphotographed and unknown turned out to be more of the historic bridges...I don't know...
Did your car come with a Historic Bridge Detector, or did you have to order one from Wal-Mart? I would like to get one for my car.
This is another great Bedstead. I honestly don't know how this one is still standing. I would hate to see it collapse though. Like the Negro Creek Bridge, this one was probably built ca. 1900. It could even be pre-1890 as a few Bedsteads were built in the 1880s. But, it could be as recent as ca. 1910.
Long forgotten road to this one today - not a lot of timber left, decorative piece for the locals
