Before and After at the Concrete Bridge

Duke Forest concrete bridge during droughtDuke Forest concrete bridge after drought

New Hope Creek normally gets pretty low in the summer, but our late summer and fall drought left the creek lower than usual. Above left is a photo from October 1st of the concrete bridge in the Korstian Division of Duke Forest. Above right is the same area from December 10th after two weeks of on-and-off rain. The creek flows over the bridge during periods of heavy rain, but we’ll take what we can get.
