The attraction was an old pickup that ran off the bridge in 1954, killing the 3 occupants. I could only get a photo of the front bumper and one wheel. After the accident, the bridge was redone by pushing trees and large rocks into the chasm on top of the truck.

You start at an obscure trailhead at the eastern park boundary -
If you want to do this hike, pick up the free Wilderness Guide at the Visitor's Center. You must either have 2 cars, or a friend who doesn't want to hike to drop you off at the trailhead.

An Annular Solar Eclipse occurs when the moon is farther from the earth than normal, and therefore doesn't completely cover the sun, creating a "Ring of Fire."
It was a great experience, and I can't wait for the Total Eclipse happening in 2017!
