[pct-l] Miners Creek Bridge, WA

I just got back from an overnight hike up the Suiattle River to the PCT
bridge.  There were a number of signs that warned that the PCT bridge over
Miners Creek was unsafe (this is the one just north of the Suiattle
crossing).  One or 2 specifically mentioned it being unsafe for stock; at
least one did not add the qualifier.  The suggested alternative was the
Miners Ridge trail (785) toward Image lake.  There was also mention of
construction work on this bridge in the Fall of 99.

The bridge on the Suiattle River trail over Miners Creek (between the
Suiattle crossing and the 785 junction) appears to be quite new.  It's a
rather impressive one - a single large log plus guard/hand rails suitable
for horses.
