Bridge of the Gods

Joining two States

Bridge of the Gods, in Mid Gorge; Landscape by John Christopher

Bridge of the Gods was the name given by American Indians to a landslide caused by volcanic eruption about 1,000 years ago. The modern cantilever structure, bearing the same name (Photographed here in August 2004), was built in 1926 and is the third oldest bridge on the Columbia River. It is part of the Pacific Crest Trail, linking Oregon and Washington states.
