the bridge of pine
more than once i'vs mentioned that starkville isn't exactly my favorite place in the world. it's a little boring in the sense that they aren't many things to do in town, or even out of the town. however, there are some "landmarks" (ok, most won't see them as landmarks) that make it special, one of them being this bridge. it's small, has a fairly uninteresting view, and i don' think it has a name. what makes it so delightful though is it's smell. seriously. the best time to experience it right after it rains because it's like stepping into a forest, as cliche as that sounds. your nostrils will be filled with the scent of pine and it is just so rich, so earthy that you'll have to inhale deeply. you simply won't be able to help yourself.
