Watson Mill Bridge

 I love covered bridges. There aren't too many of them in Georgia, but last week, I had the opportunity to go find this one, near Elberton, GA. Jim was playing golf near Lake Hartwell, so that gave me a good four hours to go exploring. On the way over to Lake Hartwell, I got on my iPad and started exploring the possibilities. There were several state parks in the area, most on lakes, but since the lakes are low, the views aren't all that great. Then I saw that this covered bridge, the longest in Georgia, was close enough I could go see it, so off I went.






 The covered bridge is now part of the state park system, so hopefully, it will be around for many years to come. I drove through it and it is a looooonnnnggg bridge, for a covered bridge!

While out, I also stopped by the dam at Lake Hartwell. I have toured the Hoover Dam and am always fascinated by them. This is located on the border of Georgia and South Carolina, on Hwy 29 (the road that I 85 follows along)
Hope you enjoyed seeing the photos of this outing.

Holly,
Thanks for posting the beautiful photos! I have a 35mm SLR and know that I should get my camera out to take pictures of the covered bridges here in Ohio, because we won't be here forever (we are originally from the southwest).
I arrived at your blog from a comment thread on SCS re: the wizard - thanks for the double inspiration :)
