Dubois has completely trashed their inventory of truss bridges.

There are several cool abandoned ponies in Warrick Co, two Bedsteads on Cole Creek and a warren on Tennyson road. The Cole creek bridges can't be seen in high vegetation, with the one on 800 almost gone.

I'm afraid that ponies don't have a lot of luck anywhere these days. Garrett, you didn't happen to visit the two ponies that are abandoned on Hunley & Bruner creeks on 64 almost directly north of this bridge, did you? I have visited the Bruner creek bridge, but couldn't get permission on check out the Hunley pony. The area was heavy with "No Trespassing".

Dubois County pony trusses havenít seemed to have that much good luck in being saved
