Summer 2002 - Klamath River, California

2002-08-21: Picking Again

The write-up said the campground was on the Klamath River and it wasn't kidding. Not only is this a salmon fisherman's heaven but also a great place for blackberry picking. If there are berries, you know Al will find them!

This is the old bridge which crossed the Klamath River. It was damaged during the 1964 flood by debris such as houses, cars and trees coming down the river.

2002-08-21: Mouth of the Klamath

The mouth of the Klamath River was incredible to see. At this time of year when the salmon are swimming upriver, the shore at the mouth is lined with fisherman hoping for that big one. The Indians on the other hand are allowed to net the fish.
