Thunder Creek Bridge

Map 

Description 

This bridge had just been damaged by a fallen hemlock the day before my visit in the Summer 2003. I arrived just in time to see the final section of tree being removed. The bridge was repaired, but damaged again several months later in October 2003. Eventually the bridge was replaced further upstream by a non-suspension bridge.
