This is a very tough spot for pictures. The road has no shoulders to speak of, it's pretty busy for a "back road" and there are people stopping to look at the ruins of the old grist mill that was there at one time. Best to have a wheelman drop you off and pick you up after you get your shots.

That looks like the bridge in the movie "Silent Hill" before they got to the town.
