Geo 730: November 19, Day 688: The Other Bridge of the Gods

There was a bit of confusion at this stop. Dana didn't realize that "Bridge of the Gods" referred to both the landslide-created "bridge" AND to the engineered steel truss bridge. Nor did she realize "Cascade Locks" referred to both the town and the now-disused shipping locks. I think we got that all straightened out, though. This bridge is the one I've crossed the Columbia on most often, probably more than all the others put together. The reason is that I was a student worker in Forest Soils during much of my undergrad time at OSU, and especially early on, one of our field sites was at Wind River Experimental Forest, which is upstream from here a bit, then north from Carson, Wa.

And in the center mid-ground, more of our friends the geese.
