I still don't know why this creek is called Fourmile creek. It's longer than four miles, and it's not four miles from anything significant. It's only about two miles from Erie.

Yeah, I guess so. I was just out getting some miles on my bike so I thought I'd get a picture or two since there were no pictures posted of this bridge.
