Kansas’ Golden Gate Bridge

Southwest of Mulvane, Kansas a man has built a replica of the Golden Gate bridge across the Cowskin Creek. I recently took a bike ride to check it out.

You can read about the bridge and it’s builder here and here.

Also of interest on this road and just a few yards from the bridge is this WPA (Works Progress Administration) marker from 1937. It commemorates the reworking of the creek (which the bridge spans) to help prevent flooding.

Pole Art

While on a bike ride I spotted these 2 pieces of art on a utility pole. Not sure what the message or meaning is.
