Will you look at this, yet another amazing campsite right on the Klamath River. In the first hour we saw pelicans, a seal, a loon and a heron; how will we ever be able to leave?
Our location is less than a half mile from the mouth of the river. In the next day or two we're going to paddle our fearless Sea Eagle kayak out to the giant sandbar where the river meets the ocean surf. Unlike most rivers we've seen , which were made into harbors, this appears to be as it was 100s of years ago. No jetties, no lighthouse, no marinas; just a few thousand years of Native Americans fishing for Salmon.
This is the natural mouth of the Klamath River as seen from atop a 600 ft. overlook. I spoke with a Yurok Native today who told me it is not always possible for man or Salmon to pass from ocean to river, or Vice versa. We will find out.
