Bridge of the Gods

The first bridge across the Columbia upstream of Portland is this one, the Bridge of the Gods. It is named for a natural bridge that might have allowed passage across the river here a thousand years ago.

As with other bridges of that era, it was originally built privately. This one is now operated by the Port of Cascade Locks, and they haven't gotten around to removing the toll now that the construction and bonds are long paid off.
