DG it was so hazy and overcast that we thought it might rain any second but it never did. This particular creek is from runoff of some pretty large mountains (or if you from the west, Hills )! It has filled up all most every year as far back as anyone can remember. The mill is a rebuilt one as the old mill met the same fate many times.

Excellent shots, Ed. I really like the 1st one, and the one of the Mill. I love old buildings like the mill and old covered bridges. Thanks for sharing.

FYI Bob!! The local Cherokee use this very park for their annual get together and festival. Here is a dog trot cabin in the park.

Good shots Dawg, I like pic.6 because it shows the inside of the bridge. It looks like its made of wood. I don't remember the last time I saw a wood bridge.

Yep all wood except the pillars and at one time the roof was wood also. There is an abundance of hardwood forest here even today and at that time the mill here and others close by were able to produce as much cheap lumber as neccessary to supply the farmers needs. The cover on the bridge is to keep the timbers dry and help prevent early decay of the structure.
