Humpback Bridge - Landscape Sale - January 2017
Humpback Bridge has always been near and dear to my heart for several reasons. First, I grew up in this area and I've enjoyed many hot summer afternoons swimming in the waters that run beneath it. Catching crawdads (crayfish) bare-handed and swinging from the rope wing that's located underneath... at least it used to be.
The other reason is the history. Humpback Bridge (aka. Humpback to the locals) was used from 1857 to 1929 until it was replaced by a steel bridge a bit further north. According to the Wiki page, it was also used to store hay bales in the 1950's. In 2012, this arched wooden bridge was listed as a National Historic Landmark.
During the floods of June 2016, the area of Covington suffered substantial damage. The area around the bridge was also effected but has been restored since.
