    Is'nt there one in Nimblewell?

    I was heading up towards the plane crash and think I passed one on the left. Caught it in the corner of my eye on a right hand sweeper before the pavement ends. Was keeping a pretty good pace.

    The old wooden bridge at our cabin. Would make a good spot for a small covered bridge.

    OK, this isn't technically Georgia, but it is about 5 miles over the border, and worth the visit. Valley, Alabama...another bridge by the famous builder Horace King.

    And just down the block is the COOLEST set of statues, made entirely of train parts.

    Imlac is unincorporated maybe why the Red Oak bridge is listed as Woodbury. The state eliminated some of the little communities off their official state map some years age with and much controversy followed. Don't know how all that worked out. There used to be a bridge over white oak creek north of their but partying rednecks burned it down some years ago. I live here and know the surrounding area well your down my way.

    "Nature is forever arriving and forever departing,
    forever approaching, forever vanishing;
    but in her vanishings there seems to be ever the waving of a hand,
    in all her partings a promise of meetings farther along the road."

    The covered bridge in Conyers, GA (Rockdale County). Don't think it has a name.
