Photo Sequences (All Years) — photo 41 of 50: While planning this outing, I was really hoping I would see a ship pass under the Steel Bridge. Imagine my delight when it actually happened, right when I arrived at the bridge! In this sequence of three photos, you can see the central lift span being raised for an approaching boat (see next photo). As viewed from the Willamette River Greenway Trail on the west bank of the Willamette River, near the McCormick Pier Condominiums in downtown Portland, Oregon. April 2015.
