Bridge Drive Bridge

Looking southwest; Deck piled up on one side

Little Swatara Creek was up due to recent storms, but the deck piled up looked like it happened at an earlier flood--maybe as far back as Sept. 2011.

Description 

I found this bridge scouting for places to take out a kayak on the creek. Google Maps calls this road "Bridge Drive" but it looks more like a private driveway.
