That's awful. That's the bridge near where we come out after running Rose Garden Hill, right? I took a bunch of pictures a few years back. I'll see if I can dig some up.

Yeah. It's a real bummer. Glad I had a chance to see it.

I have been going out by that bridge since 1982 when we used to go that way to get to canyonlands.
What a shame for such a cool piece of history to be destroyed...

It is was the old livestock bridge that crosses the Colorado, between Yellowjacket Canyon and Hotel Mesa. The road leads up to Top Of The World and, yeah, eventually to Rose Garden Hill. All it took was a kid playing with matches to undo 90 years of history. Feel lucky to have had the chance to cross the bridge a couple of times riding the Kokopelli. Dang shame.

When we rode the Koko last month I would have never imagined our lunch spot would go up in smoke.

I just don't understand that firebug thing. Well, I guess I do, Squishy set his trash can on fire in his room once. Only once.

I remember that bridge during my first trip to Moab with Bill Burke in the last century. Another piece of history gone. I wonder if I can find my pictures of it?

This would be a great place for the club philanthropy committee to consider donating funds to, IMO.
