Medicine Creek Bridge
Posted October 19, 2009, by Channin Rosenthal

I am not a huge fan of pony truss bridges, however I am a firm believer that sometimes the surroundings make the bridge more interesting. This could not be more true of this spot. Medicine Park is beautiful!! I plan on revisiting.
