IANR - Dry Run Creek Bridge
Posted July 23, 2014, by Dave King (DKinghawkfan [at] hotmail [dot] com)

While I was walking to this bridge we came across the remnants of the old spring in Cedar Falls that was the original source of water. It had also been used as a trout hatchery and fountain with a picnic area. Here's a link with some info on the parks, just scroll down to Pfeiffer Springs Park: (https://sites.google.com/site/historicalcedarfalls/home/categories/parks-recreation) Here's a couple photos I took. The first is looking into the stone enclosure and the second is from the creek.
