Spotted what looked like a bridge on satellite over Camp Creek just east of the old closed Sunflower Ammunition Plant south of DeSoto, KS, visited the property and spoke with landowner who's family has been on the land for several decades, said a pony truss used to exist over the creek and was taken out by the WPA in the late 1930's and replaced with a built-up low water crossing which is still in place today
