Really big potatoes?
Too big for pine cones or mushrooms.

Weight for traction?

Leigh Oliver was a native of Peoria, Illinois. In his early years he was a forest service fire guard and at the time that this photo was taken he was a foreman for the Bureau of Public Roads. He lived up in Parkdale. Had a son named Leigh Jr.
Levi Hill was born in Washington and also lived up in the Parkdale area with his wife Nella and her son from a precious marriage.
I don't know, but I just have a feeling that this might be the Cloud Cap Road.
If you look on the door of the truck you will see the forest service emblem, so you can be certain they were working for the forest service.

ODOT has sent me a photo of a USDA Bureau of Public Roads truck. The logo looks just like this one. It's too fuzzy to read, but that's a good possibility.

Can anyone identify the truck? I'm guessing a Ford Model AA truck, circa 1931.

A bit of an update to the two gentlemen in the photograph.
Leigh Oliver - (1887-1969 ) married Nora D. (1892- 1969). There were two children born, Gladys, born 1928 and Leigh Hunt Oliver (1933 - 1971). All are buried in the Upper Valley Cemetery in Parkdale.
Levi Carl Hill (1895-1964) married Vella M. (1900-1979). There was one son, Donald P. Walker (1922-1965) born to Vella from a previous marriage to Patrick Walker. All are buried in the Upper Valley Cemetery in Parkdale.

Arthur, agree that the truck appears to be a Ford Model AA.
