Even without the softening beauty of leaves on the trees the bridge stood out as a beautiful structure and a testament to it's history. I did a little research and apparently the bridge was a major entrance to Wichita Falls from the North Side of the River. It was a spot in the river that many people used to cross with a ferry and even the Indians used to cross the river at this spot as passage from Texas to Oklahoma or back.
I know my photos do not show too much of the other things that I found here. It is a bit deceptive how beautiful everything looks in my photos because what the photos do not show is how filled with trash the river is. When one looks down into the water they will find old trash, tires, and junk. It isn't just a little trash either. I was saddened and dismayed to see how trashed up the river is especially in light of the well kept grounds all around the river. Because of the trash, and the undetermined future of the bridge, I have decided that I will seek to change this. I know you are probably wondering what in the world I can do to change it...well, I am going to pray. I know some of you will scoff but, I happen to believe that me standing in the gap for this place and even the people around this place can bring real change. I have decided that I will visit this place again and again and I will pray until the change comes. I will keep you updated on the change as it happens. This is just the kind of challenging project that I enjoy most.
