Last week we traveled to Bear Lake and up to Nymph Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park just outside of Estes Park Colorado. Beautiful scenery and great time was had by all.
Took a quick trip over the holiday weekend to fly to Denver and drive up into the Rocky Mountains. We went to Bear lake and walked the trail up to Nymph Lake. This is a beautiful park and I shall return some day.
This 94’ bridge spans Treacle Creek and was built in 1868 by Reuben Partridge.
There are canopies on both sides of the bridge and scrolls located at each end. The bridge was originally located on State Route 4 and was moved prior to 1953. In 1961 the bridge underwent repairs and piers were added to give extra support. In 1977 a “run around” was constructed for farm equipment and other large, heavy vehicles. In 1987 the bridge was rehabilitated. Glue laminate girders were installed with glue laminated floor beams suspended from the girders.
