I've ridden from NB to the car side of Keechelus and I can't think of a bridge along the way that looks like that.  Either the wood support or the guard rails.

Green River Gorge is a good guess.  I remember it being deeper but it's been almost ten years for me.

Sure looks like the Fairfax bridge across the Carbon river with foothills trail below. North end has timbers then  steel supports.

Ding!  Ding!  Ding! Ding!!!!!!!!!

From Google Streetview:
https://www.google.com/maps/@47.0421033,-122.0405773,3a,75y,238.2h,82.19t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sDXJLaPdIxrn5Zc_W_XxnfQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

The curves match up, the wood then metal supports match up, and the pedestrian pullouts (that I hadn't previously noticed in my old picture) match up.

I assumed my picture was on an old railroad grade with a road below (like where the P2C crosses the Hansen Creek Road), but the picture is actually looking west from the east end of the Carbon River Bridge on State Route 165, with the old railroad grade below the bridge.

Thanks Carbonj!!!!!!

I believe this is correct, I've crossed that bridge a few times this year.
