Funny... Toowoomba's CK tag was sitting for 12 days. What are the chances that JT, Jeff and myself would have all chosen today to go get it?

Destiny... JT's oracle tag powers. Could not have been more fun to witness! I'm looking forward to Verboten's return. I won't be surprised if he comes back with a new tag And brings home the lost safe too!

One final picture of the bridge topside if any of you fine gentleman check back. I was going to use it as a helper clue but now that's not necessary so here it is just 'cause...

I've spent quite a bit of time analyzing the aerials of that 15 mile stetch only to discover that there are very few points of access through the canyons. It might be more of a group hike!

Beautiful picture and what a herculean effort on your part today You my Friend are the bomb! That is such a beautiful looking spot and yet the history is quite dark... So, we ride in and hike? I'll bring beer and steaks! The panniers on the Starbucks mobile hold about 20 lbs of Steaks and probably 56 cans of beer...! That should cover us for breakfast... Thanks guys for a fun day!!!

Wish I would have known it was you. It was hard to recognize bikes at the pace I was moving :)
Who was on the blue klr?

So, when are we going on a mid week ride?? I had today off and the only reason I went to "that" side of town was to meet up w/some adv friends this evening.

When was that taken 2Spot? The bridge surface is black top there and now it is timber. Must have been refurbished since then.

That was 05.. maybe 06. The road had fresh chip seal...not real pavement....just a couple months later it was already coming off the timbers.

No, just made me a little late to my meeting :) I appreciated the cool tag. Got to ride on freshly oiled road up to yarnell, which was new for me (the oil thing). I was just happy that I knew exactly were to look. Only been there once before and your photo was tricky.

**this is not the new tag**

There's a plaque at the bridge that says it was rededicated in 2008, so perhaps that's when they went back to timber?

The bridge is listed in the National Register of Historic Placesaccording to the plaque.
