ADDITIONAL INFO
The best place to take a photo of the bridge is the marine park at 355 Wanapa Street, Cascade Locks, OR. There’s only one road in and out of town: Wanapa Street. Just look for the sign to the marine park, about the middle of town, near the soft-serve ice cream stand. (Our family has been stopping at that ice cream stand and the Char Burger Restaurant, in Cascade Locks, since the mid 1970′s.)

You’re welcome. I hope you get some time for site seeing. The Multnomah falls, View Point Inn and Cape Horn are also near by.

Visited this site on 8-19-09 and found better pictures can be taken from the hotel parking lot rather than near the Soft Serve Ice Cream stand. Great angles of the bridge from this area.
