This is a deck-top view looking north and shows the gap in falsework decking in foreground resulting from what was carried away with the derrick when the wind blew the derrick off the bridge. Steel work in place for the second span when the storm hit is visibly out of alignment as a result of the high winds. Heavy forest on the north shore of the river is evident and Bodenburg Butte is partially visible in background.
