Pic(k) of the Week: Bridge over Hardee Creek

Bridge over Hardee Creek

It's only a small pedestrian bridge over Hardee Creek in the Kirkwood Urban Forest Preserve, in Atlanta, Georgia, but walking over it, the (intrepid) explorer could (almost) forget she is within the city limits.

Perspective. It's how you look at it (excluding the quantum level, of course).

1 November 2018.

  • Hardee Creek is named for Georgia-born Confederate General William J. Hardee, who in the 1850s, while still in the U.S. military, wrote "Rifle and Light Infantry Tactics for the Exercise and Manoeuvres of Troops When Acting as Light Infantry or Riflemen," the drill manual used by both sides during the Civil War. He also wore a jaunty eponymous hat.
