Duck River Bridge

I am new to Bridgehunters.com. I have actually used the site as a navagation tool for my last 4 or 5 out-of-town trips. My photos are not as in depth as others on the site because my main focus was always aesthetics not historic documentation. In the future I will try to be more focused on the architecture and historical information. The Duck River bridge is absolutely fantastic. The surroundings are gorgeous and this bridge fits right in to top off an already magical spot. And "no" my horizon is not off, this bridge actually slopes down on one side.
