Went to the Oregon coast this week and visited the Astoria Column, climbed to the top and took a few shots.

It is 164 steps to the top of the Column. It taxes the old legs getting to the top.



A shot looking down. I do not feel comfortable at heights even with a rail.



Looking down at the town of Astoria and the Columbia River bridge that connects Oregon and Washington.



A looking away from the town and back into the sun.

Definitely worth some tiredness and a touch of vertigo. Looks like great views. The look back into the sun and bridge shots stood out for me. Would not have minded having a close up of the art work also. Does the tower serve a purpose ? Thanks for sharing

Spectacular, Ted.
#2 the most original, #4 the most pleasing ... but I liked them all.

Thanks all for looking and the nice comments, it was worth the tired legs for the view.
Rafael, the only purpose it serves is the one I used it for, a tourist attraction observation post. It only costs $1.00 to park there and climbing the column is free.

Ted, a very nice series. I especially liked the second shot. The last is a great senic shot.

These images are well worth the effort you put into climing the column. With my acrophobia I could never have done it.
The Columbia River bridge is quite similar to the five mile long bridge connecting the upper and lower peninsulas here in Michigan.
