Over the Hump

Astoria-Megler Bridge to Washington ~ December 2, 2011

I may have shown this view at some time in the past on Astoria, Oregon, Daily Photo, but it's always a thrill to see that wide expanse in front of you and wish you could drive 100 miles an hour over the hump and down the other side. Let me guess - I'm sure some of you have done it, but you don't have to admit it! Today we were just enjoying the view. The tide was low and the sand bar was in full view. On either side of the bridge you can just see dramatic ripples in the mud. I'll post another photo on another day showing them more clearly.

You took this picture while driving? Tsk, tsk. Seems like I've done the same thing at times, however. That's quite an expansive view. I wouldn't want to go fast, though...I'd rather go slow and drink in the scenery!

Oh, yes...we have quite a number of "stoopids" here in Ocala. I'll not say more but I think you know the kind to which I'm referring! :-)

The official name of the sandbar is Desdemona Sands. It is a very nice picture.

What a terrific POV! Feels like I'm right there with you driving over that bridge!

What a great view! I haven't driven that road at any speed, but I'd like to!

Great view. One of these days I'll make it to Astoria. Glad you enjoyed the big dog and the "mice" at Portland Oregon Daily Photo!
