Westerville Bridge
Posted December 23, 2020, by Julian (Juliandesade [at] gmail [dot] com)

The only time I crossed that bridge was when I was running the trail from Westerville to Easton. I reached it at about 6:15 AM or so and stopped just short of crossing. The bridge seemed to materialize out of thin air that foggy morning and I almost thought it was an old railway bridge, so I had to make sure I was still on the trail. I was too afraid to move for ten whole minutes as my flashlight couldn’t see to even the middle of the bridge. I finally got the courage to sprint across it, but I will never forget it, since that was my first experience with the bridge
