Bob White Covered Bridge 46-68-01

I am sad to hear that the bridge is now gone. I do not even remember taking the above photos. I was going through old photos, and scanning so I could put them on the computer. I all of a sudden came across this one and the Jack's Creek Bridge (which at first I thought where the same bridge). Perhaps later, I will try and "connect" the panoramic views of the three bridges, if I can.
