hmm, how interesting. in monday's photo, I kept zooming in on something in the background, above, to the left, of the cowboy coffee pot on the riveted stove. never figured out what it/they were. could it be a set of paddles that sit in the oar locks of a row boat? perhaps Arthur can see it better in the original...

Upon looking closer at the Monday photo, yes, you can make out the boat with the paddles on it. I bet it was one of Alva Day's own inventions for use on the lake.

A lot of dead snags across the lake.
Must have been a fire at one time.
These two are dressed as if it was a day trip and not a camping trip.

spinsur, Monday's photo shows both the fishing creel from Wednesday and the paddle contraption from today's photo.

Come on you guys, get your days straight.
Monday, they were in Hood River all packed up and ready to leave.
I had to look for a while to find the creel.
A real, "Where's Waldo" photo.
I would like to know if the lady in the boat is Alva's daughter or daughter in law.

Alva and Io (Stewart) Day had a son Carroll and two daughters Emma and Helen. During this time frame Carroll would have been married to his first wife, Helen.

who's is the captain - ? - Power in the middle- steering in the stearn- ......

The person steering has control.......and is also the "back seat driver".

I hadn't even thought of that until I read steve's comment.
Can the paddler sit in the other seat, facing the coxswain so they can at least visit while leisurely touring the lake?
