The Bridge of Freed Slave, Horace King: Cee’s Which Way Challenge 2014 #26

Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge in Georgia was built in the 1840s by Horace King, freed slave and bridge builder, and is the oldest and longest surviving wooden covered bridge in Georgia.

Cee’s Which Way Challenge begs a picture or pictures capturing roads, walks, trails, rails, and moving from one place to another on. Walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride them, as long as the way is visible. Bridge and signs are acceptable.

Check out this week’s photo challenge from Cee’s Photography.
Below is my entry for the week.

2,500 wooden pegs or trunnels were used to fasten the beams.

Happy Holidays!
