These are a couple photos that I took of the red tail hawk at the Turtle Bay Exploratorium. They have feedings daily where you can watch the birds being fed. This was a rare occasion when the trainers were with the birds. They were out in the main walkway.

Sundial Bridge over the Sacramento River, Shasta County

 

The Sundial Bridge is always a favorite to visit and explore for locals and visitors.  The Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge is a wonderful walking bridge landmark designed by Santiago Calatrava.  You can visit his website here.   There are only a few bridges in the United States and the residents of Shasta county are very fortunate to have this monumental piece of architecture.
The Sundial Bridge is a must see if you are passing by on Interstate 5 by Redding in Shasta county.  The bridge is over the Sacramento river, which does not begin in Sacramento, but up in Shasta county.  In addition to this wonderful feat of architecture, the Sundial Bridge is located in the middle of a beautiful arboretum and a wildlife museum and exploration park.

The bridge is very well designed, and is an actual sundial.

The bridge is an actual sundial and you can tell the time of day with it.  It’s big as you can imagine, the part of the structure that jets out in the sky is the dial part.  Right next to the sundial is a garden a a walkway, bike way also, along the river.

 

 

The bridge is designed by architect, Santiago Calatrava. 

http://www.turtlebay.org/sundialbridge

The design for the Sundial Bridge was conceived by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the world’s premier bridge designer. Calatrava has built bridges, airports, rail terminals, stadiums, and other structures around the world. Though he recently completeda major expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum, and has been selected to design the new Oakland Cathedral, this is his first freestanding bridge in the United States.

Sundial bridge, Sacramento river, Sun and Sunset, Redding, California

The Sundial bridge at the Turtle Bay Exploration Park is one of my favorite places to visit in Shasta county.  You can drive there and just take a nice walk.   Over the bridge, through the gardens, or down to the river to sit and enjoy.

You can go alone, with friends, family and bring guests to view the bridge it really is a great wonder.  An actual Sundial if you will!  🙂
