The log bridge used to cross the creek just out of the parking lot on the north side of Mount Baker is now gone. The bridge was seriously damaged by this year's heavy snowpack. Many parties used the damaged bridge, but it appears to have finally given way.
The Forest Service plans to repair the bridge after the snow on the road melts out. It is likely that snow will remain on the road to the parking lot for another two to three weeks.
