Quileute Tribal Council provided materials, including 30-foot-long steel I-beams for the bridge stringers, the Olympic National Park provided the drawings and oversight of the project and Back Country Horsemen Mt Olympus Chapter members provided volunteers to remove the old bridge and replace it with materials that will last many years. From left, Mt. Olympus volunteers Mike McCracken, Larry Baysinger, Rich James and Ray Sutherland (orange hat). Representing the Quileute Tribal Council are, from left, and Tom Jackson, Doug Woodruff,  Skylar Foster and Tony Foster. (Sherry Baysinger)
