This is a photograph of the wreck. The photographer is looking south towards Arcade. You can see that the structure was very long and composed of wood. Given the length of the structure, the creek must have shifted or filled up quickly through that curve at times of high water. Compared to the pins on Chris's map, the route of the creek has changed significantly. You can also make out the concrete work of the abutment. Should anything be remaining in the creek today, it could be compared to this to see if it is a newer retaining wall of some kind.


Part of the concrete from this abutment is still in the creek bed.
