Double Stone Arch

It appears some spray-on concrete has been used to stabilize the arch.

It is possible that this stone arch bridge is older than the 1929 date assigned to it. My bridge-hunting buddy John Cross photographed an inscription on the other side of the bridge that shows a much older date.

Unnamed Creek Bridge
Posted March 14, 2010, by Travis (oo_negative [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I took a trip with my grandpa in 1988 to Maramec and we camped out in a dry creek bed by a stone bridge near an old log cabin where he grew up. The bridge was in the same area that your photograph was taken and was also a double arch stone bridge. I believe he called the creek "Skunk Creek". This is a photograph taken during that trip. The second arch is off to the left and covered by trees.
