Back in 1980, two Colorado Plateau bums (Joel Barnes & Doug Hulmes) took a break near the old wooden suspension bridge along Highway 128 and the Colorado River, just outside of Moab, Utah. Until the bridge burned down several years ago, this bridge spanned the Colorado just downstream of the Dolores River confluence.
