Crossing the Columbia, Part 2

Thu, Apr 27, 2017

Last Aug, we crossed the Columbia River on our way to Olympic National Park.  We did it again today but this time we heading to Port Angeles and will take the ferry to Victoria, capital of British Columbia.

The river really opens up before it reaches the pacific and is nearly 5 mi wide at the bridge crossing.  I was slow with my camera and missed the shot from the high point but this gives you an idea of the width.

And why the heck did they build it as a two lane bridge?  That’s going to be one expensive project when they have to add lanes.

On the Washington side of the river, we were treated to canyons.  Tree canyons.
