Title: Lone Star Overland: Cooke County TX Bridges
Post by: Lone Star Overland on November 06, 2017, 06:48:48 PM
Since Crystal was out of town on 10/28, I had planned on going out with my offload trailer, but things didn't work out and I didn't have all my gear ready.  Instead I stayed here and decided to go find some old bridges in Cooke County near Gainesville and Muenster, TX.  I loaded up the GPS with some waypoints/tracks and headed out just after 12 noon on Saturday.  I didn't get in a hurry and the first part of the afternoon was full of backroads and seeing parts of Grayson County that I hadn't seen. After I got to State Hwy 82 just West of Sherman, I decided what the heck, lets go find some of those old bridges I had waypoints for in Cooke County.  Man I am glad I did.  I found a few of the old bridges I was looking for and some that I wasn't even aware of.  Here are some of the pics that I took.  If you are wanting the GPS Track of this run, go to our GPS Trails and Maps section of our forum.

Since it was getting dark, I made a beeline for Era, TX and picked up State Hwy 51 NorthEast back towards Gainesville and then back on home.  Heck of a way to spend the day.
