High Steel Bridge

High Steel Bridge

This is the view over the north edge of the High Steel Bridge. This bridge is 420 feet above the Skokomish River. This little cataract flows into the Skokomish. When taking pictures over these kinds of edges, I like to brace my knee against something solid before looking through, or at the camera. This isn’t the time to get vertigo when shifting your zoom or focus on the camera.

To give an idea of how high this bridge is, see this video about a helicopter rescue underneath the bridge. That helicopter pilot has some iron nerves.

While this is the highest bridge in Washington, it is not the highest in the US.
