Bridge is there still, just cracked down the middle. There is a fixed-line (heftier now than 2 weeks ago) that will be helpful while crossing. The creek was moving up and over the log today, but careful stepping makes it a pretty smooth crossing.
Beaver pond is about, oh, less than 1/2 mile from this crossing.
Flowers are exploding in the lower part of the canyon, and the breeze today was keeping the flies down, but they were only minimally bothersome. I put DEET on before I got started, and never had to deal with a mossie, but I've known the crossing above the Beaver Pond to be pretty swarm-worthy.
I would be more concerned with the turnoff to Steelhead Lake further up the trail.
