Earlier this year, they finished work on the old Glendale Shoals bridge. Almost completely re-working the bridge to be like new. Apparently people used to drive on the old bridge, and eventually they closed it up to vehicles. They did the same with the new bridge. The old walkway was concrete but the new one is made of wooden boards. There are still poles on both sides to keep stupid drivers from doing something idiotic.
They did a nice job, and it really improves the view of the waterfalls and whatnot. The old paint on the original bridge was starting to show its age, big time. The water comes from Lawson's Fork Creek which flows into the Pacolet River.
It's quite a view from top of the bridge as well, just like the old one, of course.
There had been a lot of rain in the area when we took a look that day. The whole river was "flooded" as I call it. Most of that brown water you see behind Daisy covers rocks that you can usually walk on.
Same with this area with the tree in the middle of the creek. I just revisited the other day and the water wasn't flowing very much.
