Burnside Bridge at Night

Maybe it's the rain that has me thinking about late night strolls across the Burnside Bridge, but sure it sure can be pretty.

On hot nights, or even on nights in the dead of winter with the winds blowing down the Willamette, it is pretty remarkable to watch.

But watching the Willamette from the Burnside, I have found some new litmus tests rich newcomers to the Portland area: People who ride jet skis in the Willamette. Although this phenomenon is not new, it is always a disgusting shock to my system. Same can be said for seeing individuals swim around Ross Island or Fishing off of any place in this filthy river of dreams.

But if we don't think about that, the bridges that cross the river sure is pretty at night.
