🏳️ Bridge to Nowhere
I've gone out to creepy, secluded places like this many times, and often at odd hours. I suppose it can be a little scary being out there in the dark all alone, but I like to keep busy so it doesn't really bother me. On a few occasions, I run into people or some cop stops to check out what I'm doing, but out here parked at a dead end in the middle of nowhere, I was extra isolated. You could see about two miles down the road leading to this bridge, which gives you enough time to prepare if you spot anyone coming... And that feeling when it happened sent a chill down my spine. Because the road is in such disrepair and surrounded by water, it's important to take it slow, so all I could see after I took this photo was headlights to a pickup truck slowly approaching. It's 3 am so it's in my best interest to prepare for trouble. I have been hassled before. I put this camera away, climbed up the hill, and turned on my flashlight so he knew someone was out there.
The truck got close and he stared me down as he got to the end and made a turn. As he turned around, I noticed a red flag waving in the back... It was a Nazi flag. I stood my ground and clenched my pocket knife as he parked a couple hundred yards down the road. He stayed there for a while and left without any trouble. I stayed much longer just in case. "Nazis.
