Hoh River Bridge
Posted July 3, 2012, by Carole (carolejmk [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge is very narrow and log trucks are trecherous if you meet one, they go too fast. I was lucky to survive because one was in my lane as I entered heading north. I came around the corner and there he was, 1 1/2 car lengths away; I glanced off the bridge to get out of his way because I didn't want to hit him head on. So just be cautious everyone, be safe.
