The Bridges along the Water Front.




The Salmon Street Springs. This is a popular place to cool down in the summer. The jet's used to change patterns to match the city's mood, but I'm not sure if they still do that. They didn't while I was watching, anyway. It recycles 4,924 gallons of water a minute, when at full capacity.





The Hawthorne Bridge, which is the world's oldest vertical-lift bridge.





The Morrison Bridge was the first to be illuminated, in 1987, by the Willamette Light Brigade.





The Burnside Bridge, which is also home to the skate park featured in the Tony Hawk games.





The locally famous White Stag sign. And every year, for Christmas, they give the deer a red nose, so it looks like Rudolph.





The Steel Bridge is the worlds only telescoping double-deck vertical-lift bridge.
