A three stage hunt. In the starting leg you will have to go under the bridge to find the hint; The others are easy. Look for a black box. Bring a calculater, you will need to do some math.
The first bridge was a covered bridge and was washed out in the 1964 flood. Our neighbor saw the bridge float by on Evans creek down by Rogue River High School.
The next was an old wooden bridge and it came down in 1974. Sad to say, some kids were waiting at a bus stop and saw a car starting to cross over when the bridge collapsed; better one car than a bus full of kids.
The last, Wimer covered bridge, was build in 1892, repaired in 1927, and collapsed on July 6, 2003.
