Mosier Creek Bridge
Posted October 23, 2009, by Robert (RobLo27 [at] aol [dot] com)

Nice photo's of bridges, in Mosier.

Although, there is another arch type bridge located

farther up the creek, at the foot of cemetary hill.

They may have replaced it too though, by now.

We used to call it "skid bridge" as we would come rolling off the steep hill and right in the middle of the old bridge was a large patch of paving tar, which we could skid the bike tires or car tires on, making a nice squeaking squealing sound. I am sure that the neighbors hated us !
