The Foresthill Bridge (California's tallest bridge) stretches over the beautiful North Fork of the American River, Auburn, CA.
Auburn is awesome, especially in Autumn!
Join me this coming Sunday for an all day photo shoot down into the American River Canyon and in Old Town Auburn. See why Auburn is becoming more of a tourist destination and less of a place to just stop on the way to Lake Tahoe and Reno.
I love to share my town any chance I get and that is one reason why I am offering my American River/Old Town Auburn Photo Tour & Workshop.
Here are a few tidbits about Auburn:
- We have the oldest volunteer fire department in the West.
- We also have the tallest bridge in California.
- Parts of Phenomenon and XXX (among others) were filmed here.
- We are the “Endurance Capital of the World.”
- And much more…
I am offering this Photo Tour & Workshop at a sweet 2 for 1 price. For just $125.00, you and a friend (spouse, relative etc.) can enjoy a whole day with me (includes lunch), honing your photography skills and learning more about what makes Auburn so awesome!
Hurry and book before it’s too late. The deadline is this Wednesday!

This photo of the Foresthill Bridge in Auburn, CA was taken last month, during our Big Sierra Snowstorm. This bridge crosses the American River and connects Auburn to the tiny town of Foresthill.
One of the most popular searches on this Photo Blog is for the Foresthill Bridge (also known as the Auburn-Foresthill Bridge). I can understand why. Not only is it the tallest bridge in California, but it’s the 3rd tallest bridge of it’s kind in the United States.
This bridge was featured in the movie XXX and has become quite the base jumping spot. To see more of our images of this famous bridge, visit our Auburn Stock Photo Gallery, or you can do a search for the Foresthill Bridge on this Blog.
We will be adding more images of this Auburn Icon to our Website in the near future, so be sure to check back often.
Have a great weekend everyone!
