Looking from the Madrona neighborhood to the south you can see the beginnings of two bridges that carry I-90's east- and westbound traffic from Seattle to Mercer Island. The bridge furthest away with the arch is the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge, which is famous for two reasons: it is the second longest floating bridge in the world (after the 520 floating bridge I showed you here), and because the bridge actually sank over Thanksgiving weekend of 1990 during a time it was closed for renovation. The other bridge is the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge, the fifth longest floating bridge in the world. This shot doesn't show you much of the floating parts of these bridges but does give you an idea of their scale. Be sure to visit Louis la Vache's Sunday Bridge Series for creative shots of bridges from bloggers around the world.
