Blinging Out the Culvert

In north Trammel VA, just off Highway 63, there’s a 1913 dated culvert put in place when the Clinchfield Railroad created a maybe 30′ high fill to cross a valley.  Here’s what it looked like about three weeks ago:

Okay, I guess.  Original, dowdy, and all that.  But, just this last Sunday, we passed by it again and, voila!  Someone, bless their heart, decided to bling it up a bit.  I like it.

Note that the person(s) also kindly cleared out some of the growth obscuring the culvert.  Good job!
