The Hawthorne Bridge (and other views)

Here's a picutre of me approaching the access point for the dock and pedestrian path to get to the bridges.A picture of the Hawthorne Bridge, taken from the Eastbank Esplanade, which is a pedestrian and cycing path that travels the east bank of the river and joins up with about 5 bridges to cross to the west. A view from under the Hawthorne Bridge, looking west. There's been a construction boom on the SW side of the river lately. The Marquam bridge, which carries I-5, is in the distance. As I start to cross the bridge, I am confronted with the following signage:Counterweight. Very big.
The Marquam and Ross Island Bridges in the background of the picutre below:
Looking north, the Morrison Bridge is in view, and the Steel Bridge far in the background to the left of the picture.
A view of downtown Portland, taken from the Hawthorne Bridge.
These pictures were taken from a small dock, which had several patches of ice on it and no railing.
