While backpacking in the Wind River Range in Wyoming, I had to cross this bridge.
The piece of paper on the left support said,
Due to recent high water events, this bridge may be damaged. Assess and cross at your own risk.
I think the warning was aimed more at people who were using horses and mules for transportation as an animal is much heavier than a backpacker.
I crossed the bridge with no problems, but if I was using stock, how would I assess the safety of the bridge?
