Notes
  • Long low-level footbridge across marshy Pine Creek. Larry Beranek writes: "A flood in Spring 1951, just after I was born, washed out the original bridge. The [current bridge pictured here] was built in 1953. The dam [mentioned here] is gone now so the river remains a trickle til heavy rains or snow melt beef it up as happened in September of [2007]. The water was up to the stringer which supports the walking surface and the police had it taped off so no one would go on it."
