I Should Have Known

Klamath, CA, United States
16 Kudos
Sometimes a roadside stop turns out to be a bust and not worth the time. Fortunately, there weren't many of these instances on our road trip down the Pacific coast. But maybe if I had thought a little more about this one from the sign, I 'd have guessed it wasn't worth making a detour for. But curiosity got the best of me, and I'm always on the lookout for authentic ghost town opportunities, so off we went down a decrepit old road in search of evidence of Old Klamath, not far from the "Drive Thru Tree". Since the town was destroyed in a flood in 1964, it would follow that there wasn't much to see there. And in fact, this was 100% true, with no trace whatsoever to be seen, not even any other signs pinpointing it's historic location. Oh well, at least we got to see the Klamath River up close, whose waters had led to the demise of the ill fated town.
