1960 photo of Kirschbaum

While interviewing Ruth Kirschbaum, she was gracious enough to let me scan this photo. On the back of the photo in cursive, it reads Walter Kirschbaum North Fork of the South Platte Hwy 285 1960. No helmet, no pfd, and a canvas decked wooden folding boat.

Sweet shot!,but that sure doesn't look like anywhere on Bailey or Foxton.There is a drop that looks a little like that right by the highway a little above Bailey,but that looks bigger and there is some bridge in the background that doesn't look familiar Maybe it is below the bridge in Pine,they used to take out down there and the old Doug Wheat book talked about a IV down around there.If it is between Roberts and Bailey kinda' makes you more curious about that section.Where the hell is that?

That drop is above the town of Bailey and just below the bridge (visible) that leads into the Glen Isle Resort. It's right up against Hwy 285, but not very visible driving by.

On second thought, I don't think it's Glen Isle that lies on the other side of that bridge. I know where the drop and bridge are above the town of Bailey, just can't remember the name of the place that's on the other side.

Edit: The bridge leads to Sweet Fanny Adams Restaurant and is Mooredale Road.

I am familiar with the section north(by highway but really east) of the Fannie Adams bridge and this does not appear to be it. Had a buddy who used to own the frontage there.

To big of water for that section right below kenosha pass as well.
