Yeah, the view was better, years ago, before they widened 221, and the trees were sparser. It's a beautiful bridge.

I have tried and tried my hardest to get a good view of this bridge for a picture or two. The only way I'm going to get it without trespassing on CSXT property is to finally buy the kayak I've been wanting and kayak the Broad River. Maybe spring of 2014?

BTW, switch the map to satellite view & you can get a better view of the structure.
