Washington To Oregon Via The Astoria–Megler Bridge

astoria bridge4

Last week we crossed the Astoria – Megler Bridge from Washington. It is a stunning bridge. The ride is highly recommended.

The Astoria–Megler Bridge is a steel cantilever through truss bridge that spans the Columbia River between Astoria, Oregon and Point Ellice near Megler, Washington, in the United States. Located 14 miles (23 km) from the mouth of the river, the bridge is 4.1 miles (6.6 km) long and was the last completed segment of U.S. Route 101 between Olympia, Washington, and Los Angeles, California. It is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America. 

You can get a feel of the journey through these photos.

After crossing the bridge, we had late lunch/dinner at the Bridgewater Bistro in Astoria. I loved the modern Pacific Northwest decor, the atmosphere and the food. I had fish and chips and hubby had a mussel pasta. My favorite part though, was definitely dessert.
