Me and my son went to check this bridge out .Sep 2010

The easiest access to this bridge is from the north.

We parked somewhat up the hill, the road this bridge is on

gets alot of erosion from the rain and such. The bridge itself is pretty cool. A very peaceful area.

Looks like the underground gas pipeline people probably see

this bridge more than anyone. The pipeline is close,up to the north of this. Farm access to the south.
