Trusses look good, underneath (Pics 30-33)... Not so much.

Looks like heavy salt damage to me.

Unique pony truss in a beautiful location. The combination cover plate/laced endposts are rather unusual.

Wonderful job on this site! I was wondering how long is that Waqua Creek & where does it begin & end?

Thank you for your time & effots.
