Used to be a board here to cross the stream. Has been there for years. It was a strip of tree that was rounded on the bottom (live) and the top was cut flat, like it was an off-cut from a sawmill.
It laid across this spot, seems like, forever, curved side down. I think I have a photo of this spot from years back, if I can find it, I will add it here. It was super springy and though I’m sure some folks rode across it, I always walked it.
Due to it’s rounded underside if you didn’t get your weight smack in the middle, you were looking at – the very least – a rolled ankle, or worse, you were off it into the drink.
We’ll need a new board.
