    Ahh, I see the one you are referring to. Yes, way too large for a boom stick. I'd bet it was a bridge log.

    What kind of bridge would you classify that as? Sort of a cross between suspension and cable stayed.

    I would think a Professional Engineer would have a specific title for a Bridge such as this , but I only know it as a Suspension Bridge . For the distance of the span over a major river this would be one of the most cost efficient ways for a Forest Company to have a structure that would handle the weight . This picture is from the Les Way Collection . It is a Suspension Bridge crossing the San Juan River , It was built around1957-58 when the logging rail road between Bear Cr. Camp and Beach Camp was shut down . The Bear Cr. road system on the South side of the San Juan Valley was connected to the Harris Cr M/L on the North side of the San Juan valley to haul logs to Log Dump at the North Arm of the San Juan River .
    The Bear Cr. "Skidder" was taken to Harris Cr. Camp for a new Sleigh . b7 aug1961lowbedTruck2121.jpg
