Here are a few photos of Flows and Eddies, the public art scattered around the Smith & Bybee Wetlands.

You might recall I've been doing a series lately about historic bridges along the Columbia River Highway. Today's installment takes us to by far the most photographed of them all. This, of course, is the Benson Bridge, the famous footbridge at Multnomah Falls,
