Isaac Newton once said, "We build too many walls and not enough bridges." Perhaps because it really is very difficult to create lasting connections, those that matter, that are worth building, and then the time and energy needed to maintain them can be a lot. In the end, nonetheless we will all be better off building bridges rather than walls.
This is one of my favorite shots of my last short vacation trip down to Astoria, Oregon. The Astoria–Megler Bridge. It spans the lower Columbia River, between Astoria, Oregon, and Point Ellice near Megler, Washington. The bridge opened 52 years ago in 1966, and at 4.067 miles long it is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America. It's a testament to how important it is to build bridges rather than walls.. I had a blast scouting the adjacent neighborhood on the Oregon side for the best posible angle of the entire structure.
it's all about chess
