Video Find: Crossing the World's Most Dangerous River Bar (Columbia River-Pacific Ocean)


"This is the world's most dangerous bar crossing. It is called the graveyard of the Pacific for a reason, as over 2,000 shipwrecks are scattered around the area. And over 700 seafarers lost their lives here."

This video shows an up-close and personal look at crossing the dangerous river bar where the Columbia River empties into the Pacific Ocean.

Where lowering the bar is a good thing that they thank the tide and the weather for.
