I wonder where he is? Western Oregon?
Mud, ferns, log slash, a Hemlock tree. (I think)
Whatever is in that front basket, looks awkward and not very good to eat.
Did Harry take a similar photo of his bicycling partner?

Hoping Charlotte will give some history of the Leslie family, possibly relatives.

I was able to find this....and I assume it is the same Harry Leslie, but one is never too sure.
In photo #1000, Arthur thinks the two people are Harry and Florence Leslie.
On May 22, 1907 a Harry Blythe Leslie married Florence May Lang in Multnomah County.
A December 1, 1960 obituary states:
"Monterey Peninsula Herald
Dec 1 1960, ....
Harry Blythe LESLIE ..... Seaside, died yesterday afternoon in a local rest home following an extended illness.
Mr. LESLIE was a native of Portland, Ore., where he was born Feb. 16, 1883. He had been engaged in the produce business for the past 50 years, moving from Santa Cruz to Seaside in 1950.
Surviving are: his wife, Mrs. Florence May LESLIE, and a son, and two grandchildren."
Florence May was born 1885 in Oregon and passed away Oct. 22, 1973 in California.
I did not find a direct link to the Blythe family. In the July 7, 1921 HR Glacier, it says...
"Mr. and Mrs. Ray Leslie accompanied by their children and Mr. Leslie's mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Leslie, and George Finley Marlor grandson of Mrs. S.F. Blythe, motored up from Portland for a week end visit and to celebrate the Fourth. Mrs. Leslie is Mrs. Blythe's niece."

I've just wasted my morning, but I'm glad someone did all of this tedious work on Ancestry.com.
It appears that ..... your HR Samuel Blythe married Emma Jane Nation. Emma Jane's brother, John Nation had a daughter Elizabeth J. Nation who married Harry H. Leslie. So, as the HR Glacier says, Mrs. Elizabeth Leslie is a niece to Mrs. Blythe. Mrs. Elizabeth Nation Leslie had sons Ray Edmund Leslie and Harry Blythe Leslie.

John Nation (Harry Leslie's grandfather) was superintendent of Willamette Iron Works.
