Gilkey Bridge

Today I'll start a series of covered bridges that are local to my area. There are 5 that are still in use and 2 in parks within 15 miles of my house. One will be a repeat from a post a couple months ago. This is the first, Gilkey bridge. One lane, built in 1939 that had some rework done recently. A truck driver forgot to lower his manlift bucket and ripped this end of the bridge off. It is best illuminated in the night while most others are morning bridges. There are a couple that don't have good light except on overcast days so I'll make due.

I would love to do a bridge ride with our Hog group, when you get a chance would you email me the locations, maybe you could be our honorary quiet special guest an join us?
