Virginia Creeper Trail Beaverdam Creek Bridge
Posted May 31, 2013, by Zachary S

I love to see old through trusses like this kept standing for pedestrian use. I wish all of them could receive such treatment; would add greatly to the historical character of trails AND preserve architectural history, at the same time.
