Rough River Bridge

We went and checked out the bridge on May 3, 2011. The entire county was flooded but the bridge is still intact and accessible. Let's hope it stays up so more people can see it, the Rough River Bridge is really neat!

It's nice to see that the old bridge was left in place after being replaced--it would make a neat trail bridge.
