Little Sugar Creek Bridge
Posted June 11, 2007, by Ruth Reynolds (ruthmusic [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My brother had an interesting encounter with this bridge. He had measured the width to make sure his equipment would fit on it, but apparently didn't measure both ends. And he managed to get stuck on the bridge.

I couldn't get a picture from the side because of the grass & weeds. I'll try to get one sometime this fall.
