Approaching the (opened) Hood Canal bridge on the way to the US base at Kitsap-Bangor. The bridge is a floating bridge with a gate for ship traffic--and look at all the automobile traffic that's backed up! The Hood "Canal" is a natural fjord, despite its name which was conferred by explorer George Vancouver. Evidently the Hood Canal Bridge is one of very few floating bridges worldwide that crosses salt water.

Nice and interesting picture. The sub looks quite small from this angle with a tiny 'sail'.

Thanks, everyone! We really lucked out to get these shots--we happened to be taking pictures of the bridge from a little county park, and the sub showed up. We just barely missed being stuck in that line of cars behind the opened bridge! We probably couldn't have even told _why_ the bridge was open, much less gotten a view of the sub.
