2013 Road Trip - Vantage Bridge

"The Vantage Bridge is a bridge in the U.S. state of Washington. It carries Interstate 90 across the Columbia River, near Vantage and George, Washington. This section of the river is named Wanapum Lake; it is the reservoir formed by Wanapum Dam. The bridge separates the Ginkgo Petrified Forest and Wanapum Recreational Area State Park on the western bank of the Columbia. 

The current bridge is the second Vantage Bridge. The first was built in 1927 as part of the Sunset Highway (later US 10), a precursor to I-90. In 1962 the second bridge was built because the reservoir pool backing up behind the new Wanapum Dam would soon overwhelm the old bridge. The first bridge was dismantled. In 1968 its steel cantilever truss was reused for the Lyons Ferry Bridge, where SR 261 crosses the Snake River."

Cleveland - Part 3

Our third day in Cleveland. We spent the first half of the day at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. It's a well spread out zoo with a large variety of animal exhibits. We only did probably half of the touring since the place is pretty big. We decided to take the free tram back to the entrance since most of us got tired from all the walking.

Stopping for a quick snack for the kiddos.

On our way to the Primate, Cat & Aquatics. It was quite a walk going up the hill.

Daniel being the super dad, carrying both babies.

Looking at this gorilla made me feel as if I was looking at a bored old man. His expression was so human like.

Playing at the playground before heading back.

Back at home. Kids are playing their board games they got for Christmas.
