BTW, there was another Marty Moose Trout sighting today. With all this hot weather Marty is eagerly awaiting the shade of our new bridge.

Poor Marty - things will be a little rough for him for a few days.

Impressive photos.

Hopefully, Marty will stay out of the way.

Actually if everything goes to plan the only thing Marty experiences is additional shade.  I don't think we're supposed to be in the stream at all.

I think pounding on those poles might rock his world a bit.

No in stream work. Nothing is allowed in the stream per our permits. We have to stay above the normal high water mark, which has been accomplished so far.

If the bridge goes in and Marty does not move from his/her spot, we have materially accomplished the whole goal of the permitting and design process - to erect the bridge in an environmentally-sensitive area without disturbing the natural habitat.

There is also a frog that likes to hang out in the area right in the centerline in the steam bed. We've called him "Datum Frog." I think he will appreciate the shade of the new bridge too.

The first pile when in today.  Finished by 4 PM.  Marty and datum Frog were both seen at the end of the day relaxing downstream.  The good news is no one fell in the creek while rock hopping across.   Getting around will be much easier once the bridge is finished.

The first pile was placed for the south side of the brook. Crane is on north side.
