Drought shows submerged bridge
.

A bridge abandoned when this area was flooded in the 1960s to create Lake Eppalock. Drought in more recent times has receded the water enough that the bridge has once again become exposed, and the river looks like a river again. Most of the land in this photo, apart from the distant hill, is usually under water, so obviously this road is no longer used for access. Inset shows detail of the wooden bridge decking that has been soaked for 40+ years.

UPDATE: In late November 2010, just under a year after this photo was taken, due to unusually heavy rain Lake Eppalock was once again full to the point of overflowing. The bridge is back under water.
