I recall a few years back the Coast Guard being involved in a dispute over the La Linda bridge.

The Coast Guard has jurisdiction over "navigable waters of the U.S.", which is very broadly defined in law. As an example, when an oil well had the misfortune of leaking a few gallons into a small Oklahoma creek, I had to call to report the spill to the Coast Guard. We always dreaded calling them because it felt like talking to General Patton...   :icon_eek:

If the Texas Gulf coast is the "Third Coast," is the Rio Grande in the Bend the "Fourth Coast?"
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.
