The Big River is another small river flowing to the Mississippi. It's origins lie in a series of pothole pasture lakes south of town, and it meanders for fifteen miles or so before it goes under the Highway 35 bridge. This antique bridge sits just north of that. It is one of those old bridges that should be forced to stay forever, but will probably be gone within a decade. Don't tell anybody, but the Big River is top-of-the-line fossil hunting grounds. Just let it be our secret.
