On October 6, 2020 we departed our home at 1:20 AM to drive the 4.5 hours one-way trip to the Watson Mill Covered Bridge, which is inside the Watson Mill State Park near Comer, Georgia. A long trip but well worth it in our opinions. This is by far the best covered bridge and waterway we have visited in Georgia so far. However, we do have several more to go before we can say we have visited them all.
We were hoping to capture the scene at sunrise but due to the park not opening until 7 AM and the time it took for us to set up the sun had already risen.
This image was captured by Deb using a long exposure to smooth the water, which gives it a dreamy artistic look in our opinions.
According to Wikipedia, the Watson Mill Bridge State Park is a 1,018 acre (4.12 km²) Georgia state park located near Comer and Carlton on the South Fork of the Broad River. The park is named for the Watson Mill Bridge, the longest original-site covered bridge in Georgia, which spans 229 feet (69.73 meters) across the South Fork River. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Watson Mill Covered Bridge and Mill Historic District. The bridge, built in 1885, is supported by a town lattice truss system held firmly together with wooden pins. Georgia once had over 200 covered bridges, but only 20 now remain. The park also offers a scenic nature trail and a new hiking/horse trail that winds through the thick forests and along the rivers edge.
