Trestles in the Moclips River, Washington

Over the bridge that once rested on these trestles, the first coastal train of the Northern Pacific Railway ran across the Moclips River in Washington State at the town of the same name.

In 1911 Moclips was struck by a series of fatal storms, eventually washing much of the town away. Fires then destroyed much of Moclips along the beach.

I go to this area every year to watch as the steelhead trout and salmon spawn in the wild running river.
