  1. Ray, Oregon City is not at all far from where I'm at. Nice crisp image. The area is rather more developed-looking now. Carleton Watkins also took a number of early photographs of the Columbia River Gorge and Yosemite Valley.

    1. I didn't realize how close you were to Oregon City when I posted the photograph. I looked it up on Wiki and there are some good shots showing the development of that area. Carleton Watkins had a sad ending to his life.
