Title on ObjectScenes on the Umatilla River
General NotesAn outside photograph of what has been identified as the Umatilla River in Oregon. The river flows between two embankments of fir trees. The right embankment contains a high density of fir trees, and the left embankment contains a patch of fir trees surrounded by wild grasses, rock, and dirt. The river shows its currents and ripples, with a water flow toward the bottom of the photograph. The water flow appears to drop off slightly, like a small waterfall. The river first appears in the photograph after it winds around a bend in the embankments. Toward the top of the photograph a mountain range can be seen in the distance. The top of the photograph displays large, dark clouds that threaten rain.
