Old and New

MR 862

Taken from the old 299, North Fork Mad River.



  1. I remember coming west on the old highway from Lord Ellis Summit to this bridge in the fall of 1968 which was just a few months before Caltrans opened the new road just to the north. Logging trucks would have sirens on them to warn motorists to pull over or be run over since the steep downgrade made a fully-loaded logging truck difficult to stop or even slow down.
