The washed-out bridge was where the original town of Klamath was located--and completely destroyed by flood. They relocated the town. Worth a stop-and-see on a pretty drive.

If you drive up or down 101 you have no choice but to cross this bridge over the Klamath River. Nothing to write home about.

Here on this side road you can get a glimpse of the Klamath river on your drive to the mouth of the river where it meets the ocean and get out and walk to the river and ocean.
