This is the view looking out of one of the windows of the Elizabethton Covered Bridge. From this perspective, you'd never know this scene is found in middle of downtown Elizabethton. Behind the bridge, is Edwards Island Park. This is the Elk Avenue Bridge, constructed in 1926. The bridge was scheduled for replacement, but public interest and outcry led to its recent rehabilitation. It is nearly identical to the nearby Broad Street Bridge, built in 1929, which was also recently repaired. Click photo to enlarge.
Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.

Talk about putting things into perspective...here's a video of a comedian who does just that, saying: "Everything is amazing right now and nobody's happy." It's a fitting and funny video for the end of the "zeros" or whatever we'll someday call this decade!
