Squaw leap is located
on BLM land on the San Joquin river a few miles
from Millerton lake. BLM being
very politically correct has changed the name to the San Joquin River Gorge in recent years. This is
one of our favorite local riding areas. In the springtime the flowers along the trail can be spectacular. The pics
with the blue borders are links to a larger view of the same pic.
The Squaw Leap Bridge (there is no larger view of this one) as it looked in 2002 and to the right, the remodeled bridge in 2003
The view from the west side in 2002 and again on Thanskgiving day 2003. Note that the wooden rails have been replaced by steel.
View from the top on the west side of the canyon. Note the powerhouse at the bottom of the canyon.
Nancy is standing in front of the bridge. The photo on the right is at the same spot, looking a different direction, and a different season.
