Picture of the Month – February 2004
The entrance to Ferndale from Highway 101 passes over the historic and much loved Fernbridge. At the time when it was built in 1911, it was the longest concrete bridge ever built. It has survived earthquakes and floods, and during the major flood in 1964, it even survived getting hit by the bridges that collapsed upstream on the Eel. I woke up early this morning specifically to take pictures of the bridge in the early morning light. Sometimes you get a hunch about what the weather will do here. While the clouds didn’t end up lighting up as I expected them, the artwork they did create was very unique, and I was happy I got up early to witness it.
