PE - Alpine Tavern Bridge
Posted April 20, 2016, by L Goltermann (ljri7225 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hi. Just wanted to mention that this bridge did not cross the west fork of the San Gabriel River. It was at the northernmost point of P.E.'s Mt. Lowe Railway crossing a seasonal stream that runs down Grand Canyon and eventually Millard Canyon down to the Arroyo Seco. You could change the coordinates to 34 13'34 N 118 06'38 W to be more accurate of it's location. Cheers.
