The weather was nice for a walk but it was a bit hot and there wan't any shade along this bike/hike trail. I reached the geocache first and located R.R. over the Mo. with little difficulty.
After signing the cache log and dropping of the geocoin I'd picked up on the Steamboat trace I headed for the swing bridge. I was expected to run into a fence and/or No Trespass signs but to my surprise you could walk right up to the bridge. The bridge is in two parts. The Nebraska side is fixed and extends just over half way across the river. The other part is pivoted so that it is parallel to the Iowa side of the river.
