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.

This is just a drive across bridge but the two bears on each end are pretty cool -- they're "gold." We stopped and took pictures.

The first time I drove over this bridge I nearly crashed the truck as I wanted to look at the bears! We ended up staying nearby so drove over it nearly every day. I hadn't realized it was historical until we looked it up to...More

The glimpse of the view from the bridge alludes to the beauty of the area - but we found nowhere to safely stop to admire it from. Maybe, in time, somewhere will be provided given the relative popularity. Liked the golden bear...
