#47: Walk Portland’s Newest Bridge

This is part of our 100 Things in 2015 challenge. Here’s the full list.

Portland (aka Bridgetown) just got its first new bridge in 40 years! It’s called Tilikum Crossing (tilikum is Chinook jargon for “people”), and it’s beautiful. No cars are allowed, though; only walkers, bikers, and transit. We took an afternoon and walked from one side to the other, and back around again on the Hawthorne Bridge.

It’s a rather nice addition to the city, and made for a perfect fall outing for the whole family.
