#8 Most Spectacular Bridge: Bridge of the Gods
At the eastern end of the protected area of the Columbia River Gorge, the Bridge of the Gods may not look like much. An old, steel, truss, toll bridge spanning from Cascade Locks, Oregon, to North Bonneville, Washington, constructed in 1926, it’s not the most beautiful construction. But what it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for in function, offering an amazing vantage point of the river. Pay the $1 to cross each way to witness the dense forests adorning the riverbank and experience the wonder of the mighty river. And be sure to discover on your own the bridge’s namesake, a geological feature also known as the Bridge of the Gods.
