Wild Game on the Menu! and a 180′ Tall Bridge

Posted in Bridge, Bridges, Motorcycles, Scenic View, Washington, Water on October 1, 2017 by DRF


We stopped here at the “Buffalo Run Restaurant” here in Marblemount, WA.  Along State Route 20.


They had quite selection here on the menu!  I wasn’t feeling very adventurous, so I just got the Angus Burger.  I was told the Alligator Burger was White Meat.


Deception Pass Bridge along State Route 20.  Construction started in 1934 and ended in 1935.  It sure has been here a long time.  Located in North Whidbey, Oak Harbor, WA 98227.  The bridge is 1487 feet long and only 24 feet wide.  Just enough for two vehicles to pass.



A view from the bridge.  It’s a 180 feet to the bottom.


Another view from the bridge. It was quite a nice view.

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.  It was an adventure riding over it on my motorcycle.  It was so windy I couldn’t hold a straight line.  I must say it was a little nerve racking to say the least!


A view from the North side of the bridge on the East side looking South


Another view with a jetty and a few boats below the bridge

A closer view of some U.S. Coast Guard boats


This was taken on the North side of the bridge on the West side looking down.  By the time I got up here, I was only able to get a glimpse of the bridge for a few seconds due to the clouds/fog.  It was very windy day.


It was a pretty nice day here in San Francisco.  Too bad the bridge got fogged in when I went up the hill to try and get a photo looking down.

Canyon Lake – Location: Less than an hour East of Phoenix, AZ in the Tonto National Forest.

Here’s a few photos I took on my ride over to Canyon Lake.  A nice day in Arizona for a motorcycle ride.  To get to this lake, you have to ride over 2, one-land bridges.  They have quite a few camping spaces available for campers.  There’s also a lot of boats at the marina.  I’m not sure why, but I didn’t take any photos of the camping sites or the marina where they had quite a few boats.  There was a restaurant and a Steam Boat were you can take a ride around the lake.

I took a day off from work and decided to take a ride.  I rode over to Roosevelt Lake in Arizona.  I’ve never been to this lake before.  Here’s a few photos of the Lake, Dam and Bridge.






It sure was a nice day for a ride.  190 miles round trip and temperatures in the high 80’s.

The Historic Navajo Bridge – Across the Colorado River

Another stop on my motorcycle trip, The historic Navajo Bridge.  It’s located on Highway 89A near Lee’s Ferry, between Bitter Springs and Jacob lake, AZ.  It was built in 1929 and was replaced by a new bridge in 1993 for safety reasons.  There’s a parking area next to the old bridge where Navajo people were selling jewelry and other items.  I walked out on the bridge and was able to see a few people on rafts drifting down the Colorado River.
