The Mouth of the Columbia River

Taken from Astoria , Oregon. (Washington State in the distance.)
       Astoria, Oregon

Last weekend we had the opportunity to visit the Oregon coast. In the distance you can see not only a large ship, but the Astoria-Megler Bridge. The bridge spans the entire mouth of the Columbia River; it is 4.1 miles long, making it the longest continuous truss bridge in North America.
