Bay's Covered Bridge at Dukes Creek
This is Bay's Bridge. Just in front of this covered bridge is a memorial on a rock. It says 'In loving memory of 'Bay' Elizabeth Smithgall Watts 1941-1994. Professor of Anthropology Tulane University.' This pretty covered bridge sits over Dukes Creek in the north Georgia mountains area.

Duke's Creek
While you are walking on the path, you will pass a couple picnic shelters. Enjoy a nice picnic here in the shade. Duke's Creek weaves in and out along this scenic path. Check out the honey bee homes here. May be a good idea to bring bug spray. See close up below.

Greenspace at Smithgall Woods - Duke's Creek Conservation Area
Wildflowers at Smithgall Woods
Smithgall Woods - Duke's Creek Conservation Area has lots of greenspace. It was a joy watching people relaxing in these areas while basking in the sun. Relax and take time to smell the flowers. There are lots of pretty yellow, orange, blue, lilac, white and yellow flowers along the walking path.
