Ever since I became positively passionate about Portland in the spring of 2015, I had wanted to visit the historic (built 1931) St. Johns Bridge, which carries U.S. Route 30 Bypass over the Wil­lam­ette River, in the North Portland neigh­bor­hood of St. Johns.

A year and a half later, in September 2016, I finally made it happen. I parked down by the river, on its east bank, at Cathedral Park. The park got that name from the Gothic Cathedral-​like support towers, and arches under the bridge.

The gorgeous St. Johns Bridge is breath­tak­ing no matter what angle you view it from. When you stand under the northeastern end of the bridge, near North Edison Street, and look southwest along the bridge, the row of gothic arches is truly cathedral-​like and awe-​inspiring.

I took a total of 36 pictures during my brief 15-​minute visit. The best 16 are presented in this album.
The photos in this album were taken with the  Olympus OM-D E-M5  camera.
