Capps Crossing Bridge

I love the quite solitude of the Sierra Nevada is winter. A holiday drive up the Mormon Emigrant Trail gave my son and me the chance to soak in warmth from a campfire at our secret spot. After a lunch of grilled sandwiches, we drove down North-South Road and stopped at Capps Crossing Campground to hike and look around.

This structure bridges the North Fork of the Consumnes River. Built in 1932 by the U.S. Forest Service, the bridge is now closed to vehicles. I'm certain that the steel and timber bridge made crossing the river much easier, especially over swift water of spring. A large concrete bridge spans the river today.
