Liberty Hwy Bridge

Filed under: Aerial Views, Guest Photographers, Hartwell Lake — lessie @ 6:16 pm


Aerial view of the Liberty Highway Bridge — the same bridge around which the fishermen below are boating. Many thanks to Barron Cooley for the photograph! He mentions in his e-mail that the fishermen said there is 10 feet of water currently under the bridge. Sad, isn’t it?

The above photo also shows a portion of Darwin Wright Park‘s shoreline. (Anderson’s only city park bordering Hartwell Lake.) Can you see the whiteish, T-shaped structure in the upper right of the photo? That’s the park’s pier. Click here to see a pic of the pier from July 2007. The water level difference is pretty striking.

Look to the right of the bridge, and you can see a “ghost road” emerging from the water. The road was flooded when the Hartwell Dam was finished around 1963. Barron took another photo showing a close up of the ghost road which I’ll post tomorrow. Thanks again, Barron!
