Oct 21, 2008 - More McCullough Bridges

A second look at the bridge in Newport - the Yaquina Bay Bridge (1936). This time in the daylight and from the north shore.

The next bridge we saw today is the Rocky Creek Bridge ( 1927) The only way to see this one is to leave Hiwy 101 on the Otter Crest Loop which was once Hwy 101, but now is a one-way roadway. The cove is called Whale Cove. Recently discovered artifacts and historical research have led many to believe Sir Francis Drake landed here. I'd like to learn more about that.

That last McCullough bridge we saw today and on this trip is the one in Depoe Bay. (1927) This bay is famous for being the smallest bay in the world.
