On Black Friday, when my husband took his mother to the army base in Columbia, SC I took his car (with a full tank of gas and his Garmin) and hit the road! Had my camera and a turkey sandwich with a diet Coke and a place to find...what more could a girl want? I had read about this bridge earlier this fall and have been anxious to go find it.
I have been in cathedrals in Europe that are centuries old and I love gothic style, but I was surprised to learn of this bridge in our backyard, relatively speaking, that is almost 200 years old! It was part of a roadway that was built from Greenville, SC to Asheville, NC. I love the gothic style of it! To think that someone took such pains to build such a beautiful bridge out in the mountains so long ago and it is still standing, in good shape, is very impressive to me.
Hope you all got great bargains at the mall shopping Black Friday.....I found a treasure that is almost two centuries old. Don't worry, I have more photos!
