After meandering up the coast of northern California and Oregon, I made it to Portland. Coming up the interstate from the south, you come around one curve, and suddenly the city is spread out before you, kind of majestically, with all of its awesome bridges. Portland has a TON of beautiful and unique bridges, which is one of my favorite things about cities built on rivers.
The St. John's Bridge is an awesome green color, and it's kind of gothic-y. It's quite a looker. We checked it out around sunset one night.
