Title on ObjectThorn Hollow, Umatilla Indian reservation
TCI TitleThornhollow Looking East
General NotesA scene that has been identified as looking east from Thorn Hollow on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Two tipis stand on a plain scattered with bare shrubs. In the background of the picture is a line of evergreens and bare-branched trees that runs along a stretch of railroad tracks. Telegraph poles are visible along the line of the tracks. Beyond them, smooth treeless hills rise up and are snow-covered in the distance. In the center of the photo, what looks like a meandering seasonal stream feeds into a swamp or pond. The tipis are set away from the pond a few yards. The tipi on the left is smaller and made of canvas; the tipi on the right is made of tule mats. Near the tipi on the right is a stack of firewood and a wagon. A tall bare pole stands some feet to the right of the wagon. The sky is cloudy.
