Davis Creek Route H Bridge
Posted September 27, 2009, by David Smothers (davidsmothers [at] msn [dot] com)

Yes, this bridge did exist, I wish I had a picture of it. My best friend lives 1/2 mile straight east of the bridge's location. I drove over it more times than I can count as a teenager. The new SLAB is ugly, of course, but they tottaly bulldozed all trees in the vicinty, and totally re-graded the entrie area, making it almost unrecognizeable.
