I travelled this bridge many times as a child. It was always exciting especially on a bus. Trucks would fly past seemingly a foot away on one side and the trusses the same distance on the other. Little room for error. No one ever stuck their head out on this bridge.
As of ten years ago, the foundation of the bridge could still be seen on the east side of the river. Iím not sure if it is still there. This was part of the Yellowstone Trail.
