Historic Hood River
Wahkeenah Falls, Circa 1920
This is a nice postcard of Wahkeenah Falls, but I was going to pass on posting it until I zoomed in and saw the “Drink Orange Crush” sign. Suddenly I was transported to my childhood, getting bottles of Orange Crush from a then ancient vending machine at a long gone summer camp. So enjoy.
This is also a good image to illustrate how much the vegetation has grown in the last century, dramatically changing the travelers experience. ODOT is working to restore some key views along the highway by selectively removing some of the trees.
