Saluda River Bridge
Posted August 9, 2008, by Bob Martin (bobrobnew [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge has been closed to traffic, it is still there and has few good places for parking, to take pictures and is good to check out.

Keep in mind campfires around bridges in SC have a big fine attached to them.
