Sunday Bridges - Highway 51 Bridge

Oklahoma State Highway 51 bridge over Lake Fort Gibson, 6 miles east of Wagoner, Oklahoma. Fort Gibson Lake is located on the Grand (Neosho) River about 5 miles northwest of historic Fort Gibson, Oklahoma, from which it draws its name. It is about 7.7 miles above the confluence of the Grand (Neosho) and Arkansas Rivers. The lake lies in Wagoner, Cherokee, and Mayes Counties and extends upriver to the Markham Ferry Dam (Lake Hudson).

Seeing this picture and your previous one, this water doesn't look scarey - it looks like a gorgeous river. How odd that plain old water can have different guises.

Un très beau paysage qui donne envie de s'évader vers l'Oklahoma.

I love discovering new places Bill, after reading your blog for a wee while now I feel I'm becoming an authority on Oklahoma haha. Keep up the good work.

I just love old bridges like this where you can see the "bones" of it. The newer bridges are much more sleek but I prefer the old ones.

Reminds me of Alexandria Bridge, linking Ontario and Québec in Ottawa.
