Campbell Branch NW 230 Bridge
Posted July 7, 2008, by Greg Hall (cyclebay [at] aol [dot] com)

Not entirely certian that there is a bridge here. Truman Reservoir is backed up so much that 5 of the roads that we attempted to travel down in Sout/west St Clair county were under water and appear to have been for some time.

Photo 1 shows water and a large tree. Looking West

Photo 2 shows the same, this time looking from the East. I will ahve to make it back someday when the water has receeded, but am thinking that we see the same tree on each side, which would leave no place for a bridge.
