Trip to the Vance Creek Bridge and the High Steel bridge, Mason County, Wa, USA.
The Bridges of Mason County, State Washington: the Vance Creek Bridge and the High Steel Bridge.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Vance Creek Bridge is officially closed to the public. Visitors will be ticketed for trespassing.
Less than a two hour drive from Seattle, nestled in old growth forest of the southeast corner of Washington's Olympic Peninsula, you can check out two old bridges: the Vance Creek Railway Bridge and the High Steel Bridge. Both bridges were built in 1929 by the Simpson Logging Company. They helped timber companies gain access to some of the best logging in America. Towering old growth forests once stood on the other side of the steep hills of the southern Olympic Peninsula and the bridges allowed for quick work of the once pristine forests. Once the logging industry started declining in the 1970's, the Vance Creek Bridge was abandoned and eventually forgotten. The High steel bridge is now in use as a single lane vehicle bridge.
The Vance Creek Bridge is the second tallest railway trestle in America. And it is still a sight to behold. It was 347 feet over a part of the Skokomish River and spanned 422 feet across it.
Today the Vance Creek Bridge is a popular place for hikers and thrillseekers. Although it's technically located on private property, that hasn't stopped curiosity-seekers to visit, even though walking across the bridge is pretty damn dangerous. The railway ties range from four inches apart to as much as a foot, so it's not the safest bridge to span.
Save yourself the trip, fuel and a ticket and stay away from this area. Possibly in the future it will be low-key enough to visit again.
Better test your mettle on the High Steel Bridge, that stands 420 feet above the South Fork of the Skokomish River and is quite impressive to stand on. With guardrails, looking over the bridge is extremely safe, though anyone should use caution while looking over the edge. Staring down over 400 feet, look for the narrow falls with a drop of about 125 feet. It is best viewed in winter and early spring when the small watershed above has sufficient runoff to deliver to the falls. It may be running sparsely, or near dry, by early summer into the early fall before rains restore the flow.
Rumored to be the highest bridge build for the US rail line, the easy access and incredibly views from the High Steel Bridge make it a great quick stop for visitors of all ages and abilities.

4K City Walks: Spokane, Washington Virtual Treadmill Walking Tour was filmed early on a Sunday morning in May. Hope you enjoy it.
We're on our way to Europe for the summer via Seattle. We had some time to stop in Spokane, Washington and I squeezed in a quick city walk. I'd never spend much time in Spokane but the downtown looks pretty cool. I walked in the early morning on a Sunday so there were almost noone out except a couple of joggers. There some really nice hotels in the area and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on the north side of the Spokane river.
Spokane is a city in Spokane County in the state of Washington in the northwestern United States. It is located on the Spokane River west of the Rocky Mountain foothills in eastern Washington, 92 miles (148 km) south of the Canada–US border, 18 miles (30 km) from the Washington–Idaho border, and 228 miles (367 km) east of Seattle along Interstate 90.
Known as the birthplace of Father's Day, Spokane's official nickname is the Lilac City. A pink, double flower lilac variety known as Syringa vulgaris is named for the city. It is the seat of Spokane County and the economic and cultural center of the Spokane Metropolitan Area, the Spokane–Coeur d'Alene combined statistical area, and the Inland Northwest. The city, along with the whole Inland Northwest, is served by Spokane International Airport, 5 miles (8 km) west of downtown Spokane. According to the 2010 Census, Spokane had a population of 208,916, making it the second-largest city in Washington, and the 101st-largest city in the United States.
The first people to live in the area, the Spokane tribe (their name meaning children of the sun in Salishan), lived off plentiful game. David Thompson explored the area with the westward expansion and establishment of the North West Company's Spokane House in 1810. This trading post was the first long-term European settlement in Washington. Completion of the Northern Pacific Railway in 1881 brought settlers to the Spokane area. The same year it was officially incorporated as a city with the name of Spokane Falls (it was reincorporated under its current name ten years later). In the late 19th century, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Northwest. The local economy depended on mining, timber, and agriculture until the 1980s. Spokane hosted the first environmentally themed World's Fair at Expo '74.
Many of the downtown area's older Romanesque Revival-style buildings were designed by architect Kirtland Kelsey Cutter after the Great Fire of 1889. The city also features Riverfront and Manito parks, the Smithsonian-affiliated Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, the Davenport Hotel, and the Fox and Bing Crosby theaters.
The Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Spokane, and the city is also the center of the Mormon Spokane Washington Temple District. The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist represents the Anglican community. Gonzaga University was established in 1887 by the Jesuits, and the private Presbyterian Whitworth University was founded three years later and moved to north Spokane in 1914
In sports, professional and semi-professional sports teams include the Spokane Indians in Minor League Baseball and Spokane Chiefs in junior ice hockey. The Gonzaga Bulldogs collegiate basketball team competes at the Division I level. As of 2010, Spokane's only major daily newspaper, The Spokesman-Review, had a daily circulation of over 76,000.

Ever seen Leavenworth,WA?
Leavenworth,WA is such a beautiful place during the winter, and the summer, come take a quick trip with us to see what you're missing out on.
We stayed at Worldmark Leavenworth. A very beautiful place. 1 minute drive from the cute little Bavarian town. Right in the back yard were hills for people of all ages to sled on. Also hot tub, pool, local resturants discounts, washer and dryer access. We stayed in room Q66 and that had a fireplace, 4 beds, 3 rooms including the living-room, bluetooth speaker, DVD player, fully stocked kitchen accessories and soap for washer and dryer.
~One downfall, WIFI...I had to pay $23 for wifi for 5 devices (I only had 3) for 10 days, when I was only staying for 4 days.
Perfect get away spot, but watch out for falling ice from the buildings in the TOWN. While we were there a huge 6 block of ice fell from their 2-3 story building and smashed out someones windshield.
I highly recommend this place.
