Abandoned Highway Walk

We finally got a break in the rain and took a walk out to Swayback Bridge which is located north of Wetumpka Alabama. The road out to the bridge has been closed for a while but is still accessible on foot or bicycle. It’s a nice walk out and occasionally you’ll get the feeling you are on set with The Walking Dead crew when you hear deer or squirrels in the woods. It feels odd walking down what was once old U.S. Highway 231 between Wetumpka and Titus Alabama. It is even a little spooky when you turn around and someone else is walking behind you in the distance… 🙂 Maybe the film crew should come film over here someday.
