Every possible angle on the St. John’s Bridge was so well thought out that no matter where you look there is something of beauty.
What could be a heavy, dull base becomes a sturdy, yet inspiring gothic arch that appears to rise from the trees near the shore.
The top of the bridge is finished off with a pair of elegant spires.
The only things the architects of the bridge didn’t consider were the thousands of equally beautiful salmon who silently migrate upriver each year. But not to worry, nearby a plywood fish nailed to an old creosote-coated post helps us remember and appreciate what we can’t see so easily.
