Sundial Bridge, Redding
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
Stretching 213 m (700 ft) across the Sacramento River, Sundial Bridge gives visitors easy access to a nearby park and also claims to be one of the world's largest timepieces of its kind. The bridge's 66 m (217 ft) tall tower acts as the "hand" of the sundial, holding the structure entirely above the water, and you'll find that markers on a nearby plaza provide the clock on which the shadow falls. Marvel at the bridge's design, which incorporates decorative glass, tiles, and translucent structure pieces that make the profile extremely distinctive.

It's a fun bridge to walk over. You can almost see the bottom of the river as the bridge floor is meant to be see thru. It was fun to walk across and see the large Sundial.
