Artist's Description

August 15th, 2009: Traveling through Northern California, from Sacramento to Crescent City, I stopped to visit the centerpiece of the 300 acre Turtle Bay Exploration Park – Sundial Bridge – which crosses the Sacramento River in the heart of Redding, CA.

The 700-foot long, 23-foot wide bicycle- and pedestrian-only bridge gets its name from a unique design feature: Its 217-ft high tower is also a working sundial!

Almost nothing about Sundial Bridge is conventional. Its spar is inclined; its cables pass through the deck to points off of the center axis; its trusses are comprised of light weight tube steel and rolled steel sections; and its deck is primarily bluish-green glass!

This bridge is a visual sensation to engineers, architects and the general public alike.
