Today’s photo comes from Thanksgiving Day in 2015 when we spent the night at a friend’s cottage in Yachats.

On our recent trip to the Grand Canyon and Sedona from (and to) Vegas we made stops at the Hoover Dam each way. I’ve been to Vegas several times but these were my first trips to Hoover Dam.

Bridges over the Yodogawa (淀川)

Today’s photo is my random, desktop image of the day. I started looking at it in more detail and came to a strange discovery.

The three bridges on the right are obviously train bridges, the Hankyu Kobe (阪急神戸本線) and Hankyu Kyoto Lines (阪急京都本線) to be exact. In between is an automobile bridge, part of National Route 176 (国道176号). But the bridge on the left was a mystery. Nothing is on it. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be a road at all. Upon closer inspection I could see that it merely connects the two buildings on either side of the river. I dug deeper and discovered that the building on the other side of the river is an NTT building (NTT西日本淀川ビル). So I’m guessing that inside this bridge are a bunch of cables for Nippon Telegraph and Telephone.

Oregon Coast Highway

Cape Creek Bridge (Highway 101) and the Devil’s Elbow

We’ve driven the Oregon Coast Highway many times, but we’ve never stopped at Haceta Head Lighthouse before. Beautiful place.

BTW, that’s the sun, not the lighthouse, in today’s photo. The lighthouse was behind me when I took this. Photos coming…
