Into Grey

This view of the Astoria-Megler Bridge was captured outside the Cannery Pier Hotel in Astoria, OR.

The Astoria-Megler Bridge is an impressive and formidable structure. it traverses the mouth of the Columbia River and is 4.1 miles wide. On many a gray day in the Pacific Northwest it stretches from the river bank in Astoria, OR to an unseen shore. As I studied this bridge one spring weekend I tried in vain to see the whole bridge but the other side remained veiled in gray mist.
