On the final day of working on installing the new driving bridge, the old walking bridge was taken down. We weren't there to see it, but had representatives on hand to document the historic moment. The first photo was taken after Farmer John made his last trip across the bridge on our way to work.
The rest of the photos were taken by Farmer John's Dad - I'll let them tell the story.
Watch your step! The ramps leading up to the main span of the walking bridge are still in place, and a few people have started walking on them before realizing it's not the best way to cross the creek anymore. We'll be working to salvage some materials from the bridge, and the rest will be cut up and scrapped. The walking bridge has been a big part of our lives for the past 6 years, and part of the farm for much longer. We're excited to be progressing to a new stage of farm life.
