    Been over it a bunch of times, both in a car and on a bicycle. Still looks mighty purty to me every time.

    Beautiful! My DH and I took a trip up to the Upper Peninsula a few years ago, and fell in love with the whole area. The bridge is awesome. I can't wait to get up there again and go camping sometime.

    At lunch at the very spot the photo was taken. I've been over that bridge 2 times on trips from Ontario to B.C. (well before ever owning a PUP). Amazing landscape in the area of the bridge. I remember one trip because we were travelling over the bridge on a day when it was 104 F in the shade!!! Crossed into Canada via Minot. Sorry to hear that so many homes were flooded there this spring.

    Thanks for sharing the photo.

    The bigger, higher and longer the better IMO.

    There is a great bridge (combination of types) that crosses the mouth of the Columbia River where it opens to the Pacific on the Washington/Oregon border. It's about a mile long and offers a fantastic view. I love that bridge!

    My oldest daughter would freak out going over that. My buddy keeps telling her, he's going to take her for a motorcycle ride over that bridge.

    Is there a CG on either side of the bridge where you could have a nice view of it?
