Theme Day: Passageway

Passageway to Oregon ~ May 10, 2009

The Lewis and Clark Bridge at Longview, Washington, connects two states.

There are two main routes by which to reach Astoria from the nearest large city, Portland. To travel the northern route, you make an L shape following the Columbia River. First you cross the river into Washington and drive north for about an hour on I-5. At Longview, you cross the Columbia again and drive west on the Oregon side of the river to Astoria.

This photo shows the passageway across the bridge. When you reach green again, you're in Oregon. There is a Welcome sign, which I always find comforting. I'm halfway home, and I like the drive on Highway 30 after touching down on Oregon soil better than I like the stretch between Portland and Longview. At this point, I actually begin to feel like I'm on home turf.

Oh I love this shot Sheryl. Reminds me of crossing from WA. into Idaho at Clarkston/Lewiston. Except of course there's no Columbia!

Great shot Sheryl. Been on that bridge many times.
I usually follow the Columbia on either side to get to the coast than ever going into Portland or for ever going on I-5 for that matter.
Always nice to get home---from anywhere. MB

What could be more appropriate than a steel girder bridge passageway between two states? Great choice!!

Excellent choice Sheryl. Last time we were down your way we came from Longbeach, so we went south across the Astoria-Megler bridge, then east on Highway 30, then across this bridge back to Washington and home. It makes a nice drive.
