Rogue River Bridge Photo Album
Tuesday 19 June 2012 — Category: Outings
four-day, 800-mile photo outing to the southern coast of Oregon (south of Bandon) last month, I took about 2,000 pictures. I spent two of the three nights in a beach-front hotel room in Gold Beach — with a population of around 2,000, it’s still one of the larger towns on the southern coast.
One of the notable features of Gold Beach is the historic (built 1932) Isaac Lee Patterson Bridge, which carries U.S. Route 101 over the Rogue River near the point where it empties into the Pacific Ocean, at the northern end of town.
After arriving in town around 5:30, I stopped at the highly-recommneded Spinner’s Restaurant for an excellent dinner. Well-filled and rested, I drove to the northern end of a breakwater which extends south under the bridge, providing great, close-up views of this impressive structure.
Besides getting lots of great shots of the bridge from various angles, I also took some pictures of the various aquatic birds found around the area. Out of 287 photos, I've gathered the best 22 into the Rogue River Bridge 2012 photo album — the first of numerous albums from this trip — including two panoramas which show the entire bridge.
