Upper Columbia River Oregon
Upper Columbia River Oregon
TitleUpper Columbia River Oregon
DescriptionA color postcard view. The legend in red at the top left reads "Upper Columbia River Oregon". In the foreground are flowering plants and grasses on the top of a cliff. The wide river takes up most of the scene, bordered on each side by sparsely-treed cliffs and hills. In the distance on the left a low riverbank is lined with tall trees. On the right at the top of a table-flat bluff are two oddly-shaped objects that look like buildings. Below them in the river is a riverboat, with its steam or smoke plume trailing off to the left. The hills along the river narrow to a pass in the distance, and beyond them the water widens out again.
