Hello Folks! These are great Pecan Creek Bridge Pics and sure do bring back memories! Used to come here every Summer, back in the 60's just around the corner near Black Jack Baptist Church. To Photographer Gene McCluney, your "from-the-ditch-view" was exceptionally brazen! Weren't you afraid of stepping on a Cottonmouth Water Moccasin or something? I came thru here in 2016 to attend a Family Clan Funeral, and noticed the new Bridge here is completely open to the sky (smile). And wider!

I visited Muskogee on 2-1-2016 and found this bridge has been replaced by a concrete culvert.
