Astoria Bridge

When one of my coworkers found out we were going to the states of Washington & Oregon, he told me we had to go to Astoria, Or. So we did. Had a fantastic meal at the restaurant he recommended. Astoria sits at the tip of Oregon at the mouth of the ocean and 3 rivers. The river the bridge crosses is so deep and wide that they run large cargo tankers through (You'll see one soon). We're driving across a 4.1 mile truss bridge that's as high as 200 feet off the water a couple of secs before I took this photo. Oh, and did I mention that as we're looping around the 1 way circular ramp to get onto the bridge, the guy tells me he doesn't like bridges? He looked straight ahead... I took photos. And that was what he wanted. Love. :)
