The Road Less Traveled

An old section of US Highway 80 in Warren County, Mississippi crosses the mighty Big Black River on an old through truss iron bridge as it snakes it way across central Mississippi near Bovina.

This section of what was originally known as the "Dixie Overland Highway" in the days before highway numbering was put into place has been bypassed by Interstate 20 and is used now by only the locals and those seeking a more scenic route.

The setting sun is reflected in the clouds that are accentuated against a blue September sky. The rain had just passed and a rainbow was overhead, a common site in Mississippi close to sunset.
