Sunday Bridges - Hominy Creek

Through truss bridge over Hominy Creek on OK 99 in Osage County Oklahoma.  Built in 1936 to replace an older bridge.

WOW! I really like your yellow bridge. The color is so unusual and sets off the interesting steel work beautifully. Such a nice shot and a one-of-a-kind photo.

What interesting bridges you have.
Hominy Creek, is that the same as hominy grits? Perhaps I've made that up???/

The creek is near the town of Hominy where the Indian Art Gallery I featured last Wednesday is located.

Hominy is field corn which has been soaked in a weak solution of lye then dried. This makes the corn keep better and improves its nutritional value. Grits is a porridge made from coarse ground hominy - hominy grits. Grits is a breakfast staple throughout the southern US. It is usually seasoned with butter or bacon grease and salt and pepper. Some like it with milk and sugar. Northern folks do not like grits mainly because they have not tried it.

That's quite an elaborate yellow truss bridge for such a short distance.
