Historic Hood River
Gordon Boyington’s Truck
Alta Walter’s album is full of images of adventures like this one, captioned “Our first trip to Mt. Hood in Gordon Boyington’s truck.” It’s a little blurry. Maybe the photographer was still shaking from driving up rutted dirt roads in a heavy truck with hard rubber tires.
We previously saw a photo of Gordon Boyington many years further into his life. I think this trip was not long after he returned from the war. I date it “circa 1920”.
