Historic Hood River
Where Am I?
I know it’s Halloween, but I have a mystery I’d like solved. We have this Laraway glass plate of a waterfall which I don’t recognize. It appears a building with a viewing platform has been built at the bottom, and it has a waterwheel and some wiring presumably generating a bit of electricity. I think I see some lamps pointing at the falls, so it may have night lighting. It looks a bit like Wau Gwin Gwin Falls, but we have plenty of images of that from the early days, and none show a structure. It doesn’t seem to match any of the Gorge falls. We know Laraway took photographs at Yellowstone and elsewhere around the west coast, but I haven’t been able to find this waterfall. Can you solve the mystery?
[Ed. note: A reader has solved the mystery, identifying this as Glacier Falls at Shasta Springs, CA.]
