  • This is my favorite bridge. It's a cool 4 mile drive between Washington and Oregon. It also provides a good photo opportunity if you can find the right place. Awesome Astoria landmark.

  • This an iconic bridge with 6.6 km length and breathtaking views especially in sunny days. From Fishing boat to huge tanker ships making spectacular scenes here. I drove three time over it!! The bridge connect Washington state to Oregon which like 80% of that is in Oregon.
  • I have seen this bridge many times, but never had the chance to go over it. Now I have and you should too. Four miles on dirt seems short, but the same distance over water certainly puts it into perspective! An amazing feat of engineering for sure.
