Kyle 6th September 2019 @ 07:57 AM I can't remember what the rest of Joe's photos looked like but this looks like he shot with something decent. The tonality and detail are great.

And there is even a car for someone to identify the year and make.
Wishram is across the river. The train bridge is downriver. The Deschutes is upriver. Stacker Butte is to the left and Haystack Mtn to the right.
But I don't know the name of the mountain in front of us.
I for one am instilling in my grand children that this is what lies beneath The Dalles Dam pool….in hopes that some day in the future the native American dream of it returning becomes reality. maybe that “draining the oceans” TV program could do a segment…â€¦
GREAT picture to jog ones memories…..just add sound and smell.
The car in this picture looks a great deal like my old 1951 Plymouth.
How high would the water be over the falls as shown?
I was reading through some Native American history and came across this. The photo that is described is not available, but I thought the description somewhat pertained to this photo. Fall Bridge is an early name for Wishram.
“Fall Bridge across the Columbia river just below the falls showing rocks from which the Indians fish during the annual salmon runs. The sandy area in extreme left center was location of the ancient village of the Skein Indians who derived their name from the fact that the land on which their village was located is in the shape of a cradle board.”
Actually the original Indian village was named Wish – kam, but eventually became then Wisham, without the “r”, tjhen as we know it today. Wish-kam meant “stationery people.” There was a time it was also known as Spedis. At the time of Lewis and Cark they referred to the residents of the village as Enesher's.
The photo is no dobt in the fall as the water appears from the water lines on the rocks to be very low….
