Hey Chris, I grew up in Riverside and that bridge is named after my grandfather! He was mayor of Riverside for 12 years in the 60s and 70s. He was also an artist/cartoonist (did old Woody Woodpecker cartoons for Walter Lantz) and also acted in old 1930s era Buck Rogers sci-fi movies. He was a fun guy who often entertained us kids with endless magic tricks. He died in 1985. Thanks for posting the pic, it brings back lots of fond memories, of him and climbing at Mt. Rubberducks, too.

OH MY GOD!!! you don't have any idea how bad I wish I could call my self a California resident. I LOVE the natural beauty California has. Deserts, mountains, camping, food, wine, Mexican food, Mexicans lol, the ambiance is soooo different than boring Florida. They say life is what you make it, but I cant help to think if I lived in Cali anywhere in Cali I'd be a whole lot happier. I wonder if its hard to find a good job so I can relocate?
