St. Johns Bridge

The St. Johns Bridge is the most spectacular of the major Portland bridges. Built in 1931 to replace a car ferry across the Willamette River north of the city, the bridge shoots two gothic towers skyward to a height of 408-feet. Here are several photos from Cathedral Park, a park just below the bridge, named because of the bridge’s two towers, and from the span back toward the city and to the volcanos in the distance.
