By Saturday, Simon had the cables and the first few planks started on the bridge between the two tall pines. The tire swing is in the foreground.
On Sunday Josh Jeschien is the second one to try out the bridge. The bridge is 15 feet high on the near side, and 45 feet high on the far side, because the ground slopes away.
Simon hands the camera to Josh and takes a stoll on the nearly complete bridge. About 20 more planks need to be set, and then some handrails for the timid.
Kathleen tries the tire swing under a still more complete bridge.
