This magnificent San Fran bridge prototype has arches designed like cathedral windows, all focusing underneath toward a lovely walkway and park. Best views are at sunrise or dusk; absolutely magnificent!

This bridge is old with an interesting history and transports at many levels. Especially beautiful in the rain...or when it's snowing. Cathedral Park, just underneath and adjacent is a wonderful park for walks, photography and a venue for music concerts.

Very cool experience to be able to run across this bridge and get the views of the entire valley. Was misty but still had a great vista.

This is a Portland landmark from the 1930's. A great place to take pictures from and take a leisurely walk across.

A Portland icon, this bridge is particularly pretty, and very photogenic. Often seen in tourist promos. Be sure to check out Cathedral Park, located beneath the superstructure on the St. Johns side of the Willametter River.

Beautiful piece of architecture. It was built as a model for the Golden gate Bridge in San Francisco. There is a nift park underneath. I believe called cathedral park.
