PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Whoever designed a new Oregon-themed travel mug at Starbucks made a mistake that will be pretty obvious to most Oregonians.

The cup highlights various landmarks, cities and the things they're known for, including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Pendleton's famous rodeo and wool blankets, and food trucks in Portland.

The problem is, the 'Klamath Falls' shown toward the bottom of the cup is clearly a drawing of iconic Multnomah Falls, a popular tourist spot in the Columbia River Gorge, 300 miles to the north.

Not only that, there are no falls in Oregon that bear the 'Klamath' name.

According to the Mail Tribune in Medford, the southern Oregon city of Klamath Falls was originally built near a "waterfall" on the Link River that was really just a series of rapids.

Those rapids have been gone for decades.

An eagle-eyed customer spotted the mistake and posted a photo on Twitter, questioning who reviewed the design.

If you're interested, you can buy the Oregon Double Wall Traveler in Oregon Starbucks stores or online for $22.95.
