Yestwerday's ride

My wife and I went out for a ride on the MUP yesterday. It was almost warm enough for the average rider, but not being able to wait for spring, we went for it. I fugured the chip seal parts of the MUP would get rutted up since they were wet and felt like riding on two flat tires so we headed to the paved rail to trail. We parked in the middle of the paved areas, rode one way until running out of pavement and than went to the other end. Well, almost to the other end and found out someone torched one of the bridges. Please pardon the pic quality and camera angle. Cell phone camera and gloves do not mix

I assume you have reported this to the trail operator and the local police, if not you really should, so the trail operator can get it repaired, and the police can investigate. I always wonder about some peoples kids, why they have to destroy everything, intended to make peoples lives a little better. So now, instead of paving another mile of the trail, or adding another bridge, or doing other upgrades they need to spend this years budget repairing this idiots handy work.
