Washita River Bridge
Posted May 23, 2013, by Mike Olszewski (molszewski99 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Shot these photos on May 8, 2013. River has obviously moved while the bridge was there, as 1/3 of the bridge is now over dry land and looks completely out of place. Locals told me the bridge was closed after a flood many years ago when the new Hwy 81 bridge was built. Much erosion along the banks.
