As you can see by this Google Earth image, the Old Salmon Falls Bridge, an access across the South Fork of the American River used before Folsom Dam was built, but now usually covered by water.

Old Salmon Falls Bridge - Bridge Out of Water

Occassionally we will be able to see it uncovered but with our current Folsom Lake levels it is truly a Bridge Out of Water.  Here are a couple pictures of the bridge and the area around it yesterday - January 18, 2014.

That is a pretty cool bridge.  Thank you for sharing.  Water levels here in California are also extremely low. That is going to cause problems for all of us soon.

DeeDee very interesting post and great pictures of the Bridge, sadly the lack of water makes these pictures possible. Ironically I had a listing which did not sell in the downturn of the economy and I re listed it this time and Google Earth Photos still show the old sign I had with another company:) So Google Earth can provide some interesting but dated photos, Endre

DeeDee, it's one thing to hear about the water shortage out west on Morning Edition, but you photo really makes the point.

DeeDee,

So sad.  This awful drought in California and the Western US, will impact all of us, in a very negative way.  We seriously need some rain!

Thanks for showcasing it with your photos and information!
