TitleBridge of the Gods Bridge across Columbia River near Cascade Locks, Or.
DescriptionBlack and white photograph of the Bridge of the Gods over the Columbia River. Fir trees are visible on the left bank and shrubs and grass are visible on the right bank. Some utility poles are visible on the right hand side of the image. Completed in 1926, the Bridge of the Gods is the third oldest bridge on the Columbia River. It plays a major role in the Pacific Crest Trail by linking Oregon and Washington states. Work began in 1920; it took six years to build. The bridge was privately owned until 1961, when it was purchased by the Port of Cascade Locks. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the bridge, which is 1,858 feet long and 135 feet above the water. The name of the bridge comes from Indian legends. The man-made bridge was named after the natural bridge, probably a causeway or dam.
