It’s rare that I get a chance to see a lift bridge. I was fortunate to be walking along the waterfront and come across this long lift bridge. I watched two bridge operators performing some maintenance high up on the lift portion which was intriguing. The bridge itself made for some nice photo opportunities.

In our first time in Portland we ran along the waterfront and saw several bridges that connect East Portland from West. We stayed in the SW and on a couple of mornnings we ran the waterfront, over the Hawthorne Bridge for a really good look at the Willimett River. After crossing to the East, we thenn went on the river pathway back and made a nice loop run.

The Hawthorne bridge is special. It lights up at night and is fun to drive on..for most. For me, it's easy access to downtown and an easy way to get there. It's very Portland.

I loved walking across this 100 year old bridge with its openwork fencing and steel construction. It's not exactly peaceful, being one of the busiest bridges in the state but this bridge is an especially nice spot to get some good Willamette River and city photographs. Be aware that bikes and pedestrians share a path so awareness is required.
