Re: GPS coordinates for Truss Bridge #79/NC
Thanks for the reply. I was working from volume 1 of the history of Cold Mountain that gives a very detailed account of the manufacture and the moving of the bridge. It was actually moved by a group of volunteers and the concrete poured by hand and the rivets placed by hand after climbing a ladder to get there. It bridged Lake Logan Rd. and Love Joy Rd. and saved a lot of steps for the locals, some kids going to school opted to take a foot log crossing at the present site rather than walking the extra way.
But as I mentioned, a look at Google Earth at these locations doesn't show the bridge. Just looking for some help with the coords if anyone local might know. Looks like a lot of overgrowth in the region.
