Quotes:
You would think of San Francisco, to see this bridge on a morning when there's fog in the Lower Gorge, except that here all the structure is below the roadway, not above. It's a single span, arching from one cliff to the other. The steel is designed to rust, so it won't need painting; the bridge has an autumnal color.
