Photo of the Day – Bridge of the Gods

Taken from below the Bridge of the Gods, in Cascade Locks, Oregon. This bridge is fairly old, opened in 1926 and for a great deal of time, was the only Washington/Oregon crossing until The Dalles. Worth a check, if you’re in the neighborhood.

It’s name comes from the following story: The Bridge of the Gods was a natural dam created by the Bonneville Slide, a major landslide that dammed the Columbia River near present-day Cascade Locks, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The river eventually breached the bridge and washed much of it away, but the event is remembered in local legends of the Native Americans as the Bridge of the Gods. (wikipedia)
