This Gallery is Columbia River pictures
- rich with "Train Reflections" , windmills,
and all that scenic Oregon can produce.
The "Train Passing" reflects a memory of the race to establish railroads in the west. Sam Hill, boastful of winning that race, dots "The Columbia Hills" with his home "Maryhill Castle".
"The Maupin Windmill" served many generations but ultimately, people relied on the "White River Powerhouse" . It was the area's first hydropower generator built in 1902, harnessing energy from "White River Falls". Through transmutation, the powerlines began the cry "They're Coming" .
Despite progress, the natural pleasures of "The Dalles Sunset" and the rich colors of "Spring-Juniper Flat" , "Summer-Barley", and "Fall-Tygh Ridge" are still appreciated by man and "Deer" alike.
