Lewis and Clark Bridge

Around here, Lewis and Clark are big names. The Longview Bridge was built in the 1930s and was later purchased by the state of Washington and the name changed to Lewis and Clark Bridge. It spans the Columbia River from Longview, WA into Rainier, Oregon. Many people confuse Rainier, OR with Mt. Rainier. Maybe from the top of the bridge on a clear day (there was one back in '62) one can catch a glimpse of Mt. Rainier, but that is it. I've been across this bridge only twice, but it is a nice bridge.

Sunday is supposed to have a high of 45 degrees with only a 60% chance of rain. Sounds like a fabulous day.


  1. Oh dear. You'll get a taste of the misery suffered by those poor souls who couldn't afford a plane ticket.

  2. Great picture and cool old postcard. I was up in your neck of the woods a couple of years ago touring Lewis & Clark sites. Can't wait to visit again one of these days.

  3. A HIGH of 45 degrees? And you're going outside?

  4. Hey Mel. Don't tell Carol, but your blog is extra special.
