That looks like a flume in the background. I have never heard or read about that.
Have to find someone from Trout Lake to comment on the photo.

Well, I found Trout Lake people that know about the flume. Hopefully they will comment here.

Arthur did you adjust this image in post? The fact that Alva got the dark foreground and the detail in the bright clouds all properly exposed is impressive.

Trout Lake people must like to post like I do. Here is what they sent me.
Upstream of the old bridge which crossed Trout Creek at the Trout Lake Tavern over to the Hollenbeck Park is/was a ditch crossing Trout Creek. It might not still exist. It seems to me that the crossing was a pipe. Anyway, that ditch crossed the land toward Mt. Adams and took out of the White Salmon River near the old Burdett Place.
I would say this flume is somewhere on that route.
Not sure exactly the complete path of the flume, but it did go through our farm......Burdetts were just north of us. I remember walking to some of the back fields of our farm and playing in that flume. We weren't too far from the White Salmon River, so I assume the flume water came from there. Our farm also had an old tractor lane that went back as far as the lake. I just can't remember if we walked over or under that flume whenever we went back to the lake........I also remember the sheep bands coming through on their way to the berry fields areas.......
I am going to add that I think Hollenbeck Park is where the Guler Hotel from photo

Kyle, the Alva Day photos are scanned from negatives. When I "print" them in Lightroom I make some subjective choices about exposure and contrast. In this case I made sure I didn't lose the clouds when I brought up the slightly underexposed sheep.
