Albion’s Trestle Bridge

wpid8532-C59F1609.jpgAlbion was our resting place for the trip to Mendocino and it has an interesting feature itself.  It is the last remaining wood trestle bridge on the Pacific Coast Highway.  It is quite a height between the river and the road so this is quite an impressive structure.  Of course, I wanted to get some shots of it.  From where we were staying, we had a view of the bridge.  However, we were on the coastal side of the bridge so it was in shadow in the morning and in the evening, at least by the time we got back, the sun was below the headland so it was in shadow again.
