Tufa Bridge in Schenley Park

This bridge on one of the bridle paths in Schenley Park is actually made of concrete covered with tufa (a kind of underwater limestone formation), but it looks as if it simply grew over the Phipps Creek. It was built in 1908, and over the century since has had ample time to grow a lush coating of moss.
