Mexican Canyon Trestle

Pictures taken August 12, 2009

Main task: Rebuild Bent #3. Work started about August 1. The stringers have been removed from the bents, out to the stringer that connected Bent #8 to Bent #9. Bent #1 and Bent #2 have been rebuilt. Both required all new timbers. These views are from the MCT overlook at the south end of the trestle.
