Guest photographer Tom Miller took today’s lovely image of Gilkey Bridge, also known as Thomas Creek Bridge, which span Thomas Creek near Scio. It was built in 1939, and looks quite a bit like the Jordan Bridge here in Stayton. Very pretty. Thanks, Tom!
This is the bridge spanning the Santiam River just south of town, by the boat launch ramp next to the sand and gravel place. Yup, a bridge. And it was foggy. And I took a picture. And posted it here. And that’s all.
The Jordan Bridge, my favorite Stayton landmark, was looking rather pretty a few days ago at Pioneer Park. The colorful autumn leaves did a nice job of framing the two bridges, which made it easy for me to just stand there and take the picture.
Guest photographer John Brandt captured this lovely bit of Stayton on a wet day. The gravel path on the left leads back (behind the camera) to Riverfront Park. Thanks, John!
A few of the trees at Pioneer Park are in bloom, so this is my attempt at getting the Jordan Bridge framed by one of the trees. It’s not quite what I wanted, but I haven’t figured out how to bend the earth to my will yet, so I had to settle for what was available.
This little bridge is the driveway to the house locally known as the castle, probably my favorite house in Stayton.

If you’ve seen the movie “Inception” you know it was involved a dream within a dream within another dream within some crazy hallucination-fueled trip involving chimpanzees and a heck of a lot of Gatorade. At least, that’s how I remember it.
Today’s photo is of a street bridge in front of a pedestrian bridge, taken from another street bridge. So it’s pretty much the same thing as the movie, only with fewer hallucinations. This was taken at the south end of 4th Ave.
