The Magnificent Bridge In Northern California That Needs To Be Seen At Least Once

The Rainbow Bridge on Old Highway 40 above Donner Lake and Truckee is an iconic vision in the Sierra Nevada. It was built in the 1920s and is also known as the Donner Memorial Bridge. It’s surrounded by granite boulders and windswept trees, making it a photographer’s dream location in any season.

We’re lucky to live in Northern California where we are surrounded by such incredible nature and history. Have you visited this beautiful and historic bridge in the Sierra?
