Thanks for posting this Moon. We went past this last week and wondered if we should take that side channel since it had always been a fun little jaunt off the main flow going under that old bridge. Our intuition told us not to and when we looked back up that channel we could see barbed wire fully across the water! Now to hear your report that the whole bridge is down makes me feel so grateful for solid river sense and intuition. We had two full rafts of children... In hind sight, we should have posted something immediately. I'm glad we have other Buzzards out there thinking for us too! Thanks again and continue to enjoy that peaceful section of the C...in the main flow!
