Looks great. Im not in the loop on what the reason behind building it was. Tree hugger's trying to shut the trail down or was the swamp really that bad? Where did they get the funding?

Drove by the trail parking lot on my way to/from Lake Louise this weekend and the parking lot was stuffed with trucks and empty ATV trailers as usual...................

A nice looking swamp buggy in the parking lot on the way home today also.

Here are pics I took. They only tell a small part of the story. Once I collect pics from others I'd like to put together a slide show. But that's for another time.

Now you have to post a $1,500 bond? What is the story on that? take the state or whoever out there and show them the bridge, maybe get a waiver. Is the bridge something we want in the Frontiersman paper or TV news?

No, we had to post the bond before we started work. They will hold it for five years.

How are they going to be attached? I see them running away in short order.

typical sign post bolted to the side. Running away, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
