This bridge is on the Old Donner
Pass Highway It has a spectacular view of Donner
Lake and Donner
Pass on Route 80.
A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (
Old Hwy 40 at
Summit , Truckee
) on Saturday when two cars, also
the bridge, scared the bear into jumping over
edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the
ledge and was able to pull itself to safety. Authorities
decided that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so
they returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound asleep
on the ledge.
After securing a net under the bridge the bear was
tranquilized, fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and
walked out of the net.
There is a moral to this story you know; this old
bear made a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails.
Somehow he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he
saw he was in a very bad, impossible situation and what did he
do? Yep, he took a nap and sure enough the Lord took care of
the situation while he was a sleep.
The moral of the story is that when
confronted with a bad situation,
sometimes the best solution is to take a nap and rest in the trust of the Lord to take
care of the rest!
