Walk Across The St Johns Bridge For A Gorgeous View Of Oregon’s Fall Colors
Oregon’s fall foliage is in its full glory right now, and you don’t want to miss it. Soon enough, we’ll settle into winter, which means foggy, rainy days in the western part of the state, and cold, deep snow in the eastern part, so get out there and do some leaf-peeping! Cathedral Park is one of the prettiest places to visit, and when you walk across the St. Johns Bridge, you’ll get some gorgeous views.

During its dedication ceremony in 1931, David B. Steinman, the engineer responsible for the project, said, “A challenge and an opportunity to create a structure of enduring beauty in the God-given wondrous background was offered us when were asked to design the bridge. It is the most beautiful bridge in the world we feel.” We couldn’t agree more.
