360° VR Panoramas of Mount Shasta and the Klamath-Trinity Mountains
The Salmon River
Klamath National Forest, California

The Salmon River epitomizes the remote country of the Klamath region. There is forestry, and fish in the river, even a few gold mines, but very few people.

The roads are narrow, the towns tiny and far between, and 98 percent of the land belongs to Klamath National Forest. There are no dams on either fork of the river, both of which are designated Wild and Scenic Rivers, and much of the mountainous watershed is protected as wilderness.
