Ok, everyone has talked about Jealous Branch, but can you imagine Jealous Creek?
Because why the hell not? So while I finish the one-shot I’m currently working on, here! Have one actual drabble!
“He’s not so bad as everyone think he is” Poppy assured him one time while they walked to meet the others. “I think he is just shy”
“Shy?” Creek wondered out loud, skeptical. Were they talking about the same Branch? Because surely not even Poppy could pass his grumpiness as shyness.
“Yeah, he has trouble opening up to people,” she added. “But I know if I keep trying, I’m sure he’ll come around!”
Creek sighed mentally. Sometimes he worried Poppy’s optimism would hurt her. He was about to advise her to not to get her hopes up very high when she paused, put a hand on his arm to get his attention and in a confident kind of tone, went on.
“I’ve made progress,” she said excitedly, trying to whisper.
The second highest railway arch bridge ever built in the United States, the Vance Creek arch bridge soars 348 feet above a thick forest valley in Washington State’s Olympic peninsula. Originally constructed in 1929 by the Simpson Logging Company, the bridge was eventually abandoned and has neither tracks nor a roadway on top of it. Located several miles north on the same rail line and still in use as a road bridge since 1950 is the High Steel bridge over the South Fork of the Skokomish river and the highest arch bridge ever built for a U.S. rail line at 427 feet. Both bridges were built by the American Bridge Company.
