TitleThe Vista House at Crown Point on the Columbia River Highway near Portland, Oregon (Written in pencil on back of photo)
DescriptionA black-and-white photograph with the number 8601 written in white ink on the lower left corner. On the back of the photo is written in pencil "The Vista House at Crown Point on the Columbia River Highway near Portland, Oregon". The curves of the two-lane highway lead up to the scenic overlook of Vista House, an octagonal stone building with a copper dome roof, constructed between 1916 and 1918 as a rest stop and a memorial to early pioneers. The view is up the Columbia River to the east during autumn or winter. We see partly-forested hills and mountains, the river and its banks, and far away snow on some mountains. In the foreground of the photo are bare-branched trees, evergreens, and telephone poles lining the road. A white wooden fence follows along part of the roadway. There seems to be some kind of building along the road leading up to Vista House, obscured behind the big evergreen in the foreground. Towards the right corner of the photo it looks as though an automobile is parked in the grass.
