Notes
  • Eric Sakowski asked the Humboldt County Historical Society for information about this bridge and received this answer from Catherine Mace: "You have a good picture of the bridge over the Klamath River at Weitchpec. The large tree you see through the bridge is the gambling tree and the village of Weitchpec is the structures behind it. The road goes across and makes almost a hairpin turn to the right then it branches . To the right you go up river and to the left goes down river through Weitchpec."
  • See 1861 Weitchpec - Weitchpec, California, USA. The bridge pictured here was likely a replacement for the older bridge.
