Don't blink or you'll miss these golden bears when crossing this bridge. My boyfriend grew up in California, and this brought back many memories for him as we passed through here on our family vacation this summer. He's been dying to stop here, because of...More

I drove back and forth over this bridge a number of times during my recent stay in the area. The first thing you notice: a gold bear statue on each side of the road. You say to yourself, "I wonder why they are painted gold."...More

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.

This small spot is worth seeing, for the historical value. There is parking across the street (folks were stopping in the middle of the road--not cool). There is a plaque giving the history of this specific spot. Great.

We actually parked on the side of the road, off the road in what is probably a turn out for something else but it was the safest spot to stop and take a few pictures. It was going southbound just passed the bridge. The Bears...More

This is LITERALLY just a bridge, but it's different and neat in the sense of the gold grizzly bears on each side of it, you don't get that anywhere else in the state. There's no where safe to stop and take pictures of it so...More
