A Klikitat Tribe (Native American) legend’s here, “The Bridge Of The Gods”, which deals with a huge, historic (ca. 1450 AD), collapse of earth, resulting in a rocky, earthen bridge of sorts – some 70 meters high, 6 kilometers long – that avalanched, later formed, into the Columbia River, between Washington state and Oregon.

It is is inferred from various sources, that:

1. This gigantic, elogated earth mound, was actually used by Klikitats and other Indian tribes, to venture – walk across, back and forth, north and south, over the wide, fast-flowing Columbia River, using the land bridge.

2. In some versions, the large Indian canoes passed up – and downstream, on the Columbia River, under the bridge. Could have been a dark, unlighted tunnel, perhaps: 30 m wide x 3 m high, 75 meters long.

Only a few necessary Indians went by canoe under the bridge, bidding farewell to the others, fearing the bridge would… collapse on them. It finally did that.

3. There are other, similar legends, featuring Thunderbird, Coyote, Wolf, Grizzly Bear… and…
