This afternoon we spent 45 minutes looking for Nutty Narrows in Longview, Washington. We finally found the world’s only known squirrel bridge.
Surprisingly, we were the only tourists there, must have been the time of day. I also had to create a Foursquare checkin.
A tugboat and barge approach the lock as the bridge swings open.
The barge is fully in the lock and the water rises.
On the other side of the dam, a fish ladder allows fish to move up and downstream around the dam. Sitting in the room is a man in front of a computer who counts the types of fish all day long. Here some Chinook swim past the counting station.
Also on premises is a fish hatchery where many local species of fish are raised and then released into the river.
A grey whale has been stuck in the Klamath River for almost 2 months, and refuses to swim back out to sea. There were huge crowds watching the whale from the bridge.

A short video of the whale circling. Also, we spotted some otters.
