Bridge of the Gods

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Bonneville Slide of 400 years ago completely blocked the Columbia River, creating the mythical Bridge of the Gods. Eventually, it collapsed in a massive flood. Today, a highway bridge in a narrow part of the river marks the spot.
