Looking West as the sunsets in North Idaho behind the famous Sandpoint Long Bridge. The Sandpoint Train Bridge is the bridge on the right side of the image. The bridges are generally considered the place where Lake Pend Oreille (right side of image) starts flowing into the Pend Oreille River (left side of image).
The Sandpoint Train Bridge - Prior to the dams on the Clark Fork River and Pend Oreille River, the middle section of this bridge rotated to allow for larger vessels to pass below the bridge. Today the bridge is a "fixed" bridge and no longer rotates, but you can still see the steel wheels and track on the middle pylon of its days past.
