The Neosho River bridge has for years been something of an unofficial congregating area for Iolans young and old.
Fishing enthusiasts note the river on the west edge of Iola marks one of the few places in Kansas where they can legally harvest spoonbill.
Picnickers, meanwhile, enjoy the secluded views of the river, regardless of whether rains have swollen the waters to a swift roar, or if abnormally dry conditions slow the current to a trickle.
