Well, we found the bridge — it’s about 25 yards downstream in some weeds. It’s hard to tell whether some kids pulled it up and cast it aside, or whether it was swept up in the periodic flooding they’ve been doing to flush out the trout habitat. I’d actually been wondering why it seemed as stable as it was. From what I could tell it was a construction truss balanced on two logs, which formed the footings — the whole thing was about 18 inches wide, and probably ten to fifteen feet long. Turns out, there are two parts to our little footbridge — the logs, which are connected by one long skinny board, and which were held in place on the banks by a big piece of rebar on each end, and then the truss, which fit over the whole thing. I tried to drag it back into place by myself, but it’s too big. So now I just need to find some of them handy men-folks who are good with things like rebar and a maul, so we can put it back across the creek.
