Harry Flood Bryd Bridge

A very interesting area on the Blueridge Parkway is the Harry Flood Bridge. It is at this point the Parkway crosses the James. It is also the lowest point of elevation on the Parkway.

At the Bridge you will find a reconstructed boat lock, a small museum, a picnic area. and the banks of the James. Underneath the bridge runs a causeway that you can walk, if you look up you will see clay nestlings of sparrows.

Below you, Great White Egrets and Blue Herons can often be seen making a low flight under the bridge.

Along the south side of the James River you will see if you sneak up quietly snapper turtles sunning themselves on logs. Frogs, chipmunks, Canadian geese, and all varieties of wild life can be found, if you walk quietly. Although, I have not seen deer here, I have seen their sign.

Along the banks of the James you can find day lilies, and other plants making their home along the James.

One of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen appeared almost as a golden fire.
