I don't see any power lines here, so maybe Alva Day was just enjoying the scenery? This view of Hood River and Mt. Hood is from the post-bridge pre-Bonneville era. The river is moving swiftly, as evidenced by the ripples downstream.
You might be enjoying the Hood River Panorama, but I am enjoying the Washington side panorama.
What a peaceful scene.
I don't think that is the railroad grade down below, which makes me wonder where the railroad is?
Wonderful farm ground until it flooded.

Great memories of four years spent in Hood River in high school. Great bunch of kids to be with as we to attempted to stumble our way towards adulthood.

Oh yes, Buzz, know a whole bunch of the "stumblers."

LE, I believe that is the RR on the level fill, the picture taken from or near the highway which is on solid ground rather than on a fill.

I suppose it is only logical that we are looking at a railroad grade.
My guess is Alva Day is standing at the top of Dock Grade.
When I mentioned the farm ground flooding, I was thinking of spring floods, but, I wonder if Alva Day knew this scene would change with the building of Bonneville Dam and was wise enough to take pre-dam photos.
HHR photo #906 gives an aerial view.
