Cape Creek Bridge
Cape Creek Bridge is a unique concrete bridge designed to look like a roman aqueduct with multiple levels of arches. The bridge was built in 1932 by Conde Balcom McCullough. It is positioned just south of the Heceta Head Lighthouse and is one of the most photographed bridges in Oregon. A small creek runs underneath the bridge and flows into the Pacific Ocean. You can walk the trail from below the bridge to the Heceta Head Lighthouse Scenic Viewpoint.

Trail to the Heceta Lighthouse
The following photos were taken as we walked up the trail to the lighthouse.

There was a path next to the lighthouse which led upward where you could look down below, and also take a photo of just the lighthouse tower. Because of the fog, you couldn’t really see much beyond the tower itself. Shawn went up first and I followed later after taking pictures of the nearby plants.
It was an interesting trail and viewpoint with lots of photos to take and despite the mist, we had fun trying to get some great shots!
