A Hike With the Mosquitos

July 1st, 2017

Spectacular Camelback Steel Truss spans and drawbridge on the CSX Railroad over the Tennessee River at New Johnsonville, TN.  To get this pic, I had to park and hike 2 miles up the road  to the bridges in the 2nd picture, with the Tennessee River on one side of the road and a swamp on the other and the temperature 92 degrees.   Every 20 feet, I ran into a swarm of mosquitoes and bugs.   As soon as I outran them, I’d run into another swarm.  Bug spray did not work..... I think they drink Raid as cocktails.
