Bridge of the Gods was a name given to a very large landslide that blocked the Columbia River Gorge a couple hundred years prior to when Europeans first visited the scene near present day Cascade Locks. For a period of time after the landslide you could walk across the gorge on top of the landslide and hence the name. That same name has also been given to a modern bridge that was built across the river in this same location. The gorge is not quite as wide due to the earthen deposits left over from the ancient slide. This is a shot from Thunder Island looking downstream at the modern bridge at sunset. C&C always welcome.
