The Sundial Bridge is a pedestrian suspension bridge that crosses the Sacramento River at Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, California (near Mount Lassen).  The spire of the bridge is one of the largest working sundials in the world!  The steel, glass, and granite span opened on July 4, 2004, and was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.  The Sundial Bridge is particularly spectacular at night!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
