Most definitely on those outriggers. Different shape, color, and rust patina - first thing that stands out when staring at it from a good side view. Home construction on opposite side is brilliant - huge deck overlooking creek valley.

Interesting little bridge. Without a closer inspection, I suspect that the outriggers might be a later addition.

Walk down old abandoned road from hiway to this one. Amazing location, very high off creek bank. Spoke with local property owner. Neat experience.
