Bridges, railroad cars and the Portland Trail Blazers
Seen from the Steel Bridge, the Broadway Bridge and, in the distance, the Fremont Bridge. The train snakes along slowly and keeps all of that freight on the tracks. To the right of this sight and across a couple of streets stands the Moda Center where the Portland Trail Blazers play their home games. I'm off on my Trafalgar tour, missing a couple of pre-season games, but I will be back in plenty of time for the first game of the regular season at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder on October 29. When I took this photo on October 25, 2008, the arena was still known as the Rose Garden. A lot of us still miss that name for the building.
