Redding, California: Sundial Glass Bridge

Walk on glass, see the water race between your feet, but you are not wet! The sundial aspect of the design is not an accurate gnomon, so don't try to tell time with it.

Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay

A glass-bottom bridge spans across the Sacramento River with a giant working sundial attached to it (Only accurate on the Summer Solstice in June). A fun little visit.

Sundial Glass Bridge

This is an awesome glass-floored suspension foot bridge using its only mast as a breathtaking, beautiful working sundial, unlike anything I've ever seen. It only has time markers to 3 pm so if you get here late you will have to bring a watch. Just west of the 5 in Redding.

Because the bridge was so incredibly expensive to build, there are hidden cameras everywhere!

Fun, neat to see the bridge. Don't bother with the garden, pretty lame and all on a hot dirt road.
