I have no idea how far above the river this bridge is supposed to be, but it's pretty scary right now.

There is a second collapsed bridge further down after the gorge, it's in the river in this photo, though difficult to pick out due to all the trees/river. I'm pretty sure there's also a tree stuck against it.

Also, lesson learned from Sunday, the gorge mentioned in the guide book as "maybe reaches g4 in high water" is probably g5 in flood (2.2 on the gauge). We made it half way through before scrabbling into an eddy and it was the most terrified I've been in a while...
