Driving in my car from Ocala to Belleview, Florida I caught a glimpse of some concrete bridge columns. These monoliths are camouflaged by vines and surrounded by lush trees just off the road. As a teenager I was somewhat surprised by the sight. The columns look like ancient pylons sitting in a wooded median where US Highway 301/441 diverts. The north bound and south bound traffic separates for a few hundred yards to then reconvene with a low grassy area betwixt. Bustling commuters pass by unaware of these disguised wonders. Being unsure about the significance of these structures, my dad later explained.
