Fireworks Go Boom

The freeway circuit that surrounds downtown is the best view for the fireworks that are shot from a barge on the Willamette. The arcing slope of North Interstate 5 as it descends the Marquam Bridge puts me 150 feet above the water but close enough to touch the smoke and bursts of lights and deep explosions and as I orbit these huge airborne fireworks the city’s little skyscrapers are eye to eye with a boy on a motorbike on a bridge on a holiday.
