Douglas Memorial Bridge Memorial

In 1964, the Douglas Memorial Bridge was swept away by a massive flood. The entrance to the bridge is still there with the copper bears. The new bridge is a bit up river with large gold bears at each end.

It's the same memorable Christmas week flood that swept away Captain Courageous, miracle survivor cow.
