Historic Hood River
Here’s Harry DeWitt with C.D. Nicklesen, G.D. Woodworth, and C.C. Walton at the lava beds southwest of Parkdale. It seems odd to me such a prominent geological feature doesn’t get more attention, either today or in the historic record. We know there used to be a Chautauqua gathering at a campground near the lava beds during the summertime, but I suppose most people prefer enjoying one of our rivers or lakes when they need to cool down.
