A friend posted about this online and I see Mike Goff's comment below.
Here's another media article/coverage link.
This bridge suffered some fairly serious damage last night after a rock smashed through the deck and rail. Hopefully, the structural damage is minimal and repairs can be made.
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That bridge just takes my breath away and I would love to try and see that in person someday. Many thanks for sharing it with us. Just awesome.....
Thanks for the love guys as I am a new contributor here! It is an awesome spot and the way the bridge blends into the stunning natural setting is pretty awesome. I also uploaded a second picture from the opposite view as requested!
Sometimes it’s funny how things workout. I have been waiting a year to get my new camera and photograph this little bridge that was just outside my backdoor when I worked in Portland. I had photographed this little structure with my old camera, but the photos were junk.
I purchased my new camera last week and am headed to the Portland area in two weeks. I am planning on heading up the gorge and do a bunch of new shots. Just when I am finally going to get the photos of the falls and the Benson Bridge, bam someone else has done it.
Very nice work Chris, I'll have a hard time doing a better job with the side profile shot. I would love to see more photos if you have them.
This is one of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen.
WOW!....The Columbia River Gorge and it's waterfalls have been on the top of "Places to visit" list since I was a kid.
Might end up on my bucket list....but I'll get there someday!
