Astoria-Megler Bridge, Oregon/Washington

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort in Seaview, Washington. My scheduled departure date is June 17th.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She is now scheduled to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

On the way to Seaview two days ago, I crossed the Columbia River on the bridge that goes from Astoria, Oregon to Megler, Washington. According to Wikipedia, at 4.1 miles it is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America. You can read all about this bridge by clicking this Wikipedia link…

You can see the bridge location in the below Google Earth image. The TT pin marks my current location…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…


I approach the bridge heading in an easterly direction…


Up on the bridge, one lane was closed to facilitate sandblasting and painting…


Once over the highest point of the bridge you still have a way to go before reaching Washington…


I took the following three photos a few years back. This one is from a hilltop overlooking Astoria…


Down along the waterfront in Astoria…


Climbing the upward incline ramp…


I’m scheduled to be in Seaview for 13 days. I’ve been here several times before and always enjoy this beautiful area.


Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day at 62 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 63 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location in the State of Washington. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
