Caney Fork Bridge
Posted August 12, 2010, by Hard Tymes (hardtymes [at] gmail [dot] com)

The same cell phone text I sent my friend:

"I may be an old wood plank county bridge, but always maintain your bridges. Ya never know which one will carry you back across the the county line called hurt."

Perfect picture with a lot of soul.

Thank You.....
