Historic Hood River
The Kiser Bros. used this image to show the majesty of Mt. Hood, but I think the contemporary view of the 1902 Yacolt burn is far more interesting. According to the notes:
Mt. Hood, from Head of Eagle Creek: While Mt. Hood is of commanding interest from any point of view– visible from far out at sea, or from the Blue Mountains, 200 miles east of it– its majesty is inexpressible when beheld from some neighboring peak of the Cascades. Eagle Creek enters the Columbia in the very heart of the Cascade Mountains, a flashing, glorious torrent of limpid crystal, leaping in cataracts down the ravine from a height of thousands of feet. From almost unknown and unvisited summit of its watershed this photograph was taken in the spring of 1903. The northwest front of the great mountain is here presented, at a distance of fifteen miles from the camera. The snows of a thousand winters are stored in the glaciers which stream downward toward the beholder, their congealed masses of ice on the Eliot glacier being many hundred feet in thickness. This view represents the midwinter aspect of the summit of the Cascades (height, 11,225).
