2nd time I have been here and well worth the trip. Just when you think you've gone too far down an old dirt road, you find it in such a beautiful setting. Worth the time and effort!

An easy, short drive through the countryside to see some history and enjoy the local scenery. The bridge is beautiful and in great shape. Wonderful picture opportunity.

The coastline is rugged and magnificent, but this side trip was a nice change of scenery. Don't miss the giant tree across from the bridge.
