Update to this Quest

This quest originally appeared in Valley Quest:89 Treasure Hunts. This quest was revised and is included in Best of Valley Quest. We have had a report from a Quester that the carvings you could once see from the Vilas Bridge have been washed away and destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene and indeed the bridge is not safe for foot traffic at this point.
