This photograph album is comprised of 111 gelatin silver prints illustrating a multi-day excursion through what appears to be the Mount Hood National Forest (then the Oregon National Forest). The photos, taken circa 1910, depict preparation, travel, and wilderness living.
The bulk of the album is comprised of photographs of two men engaged in wilderness activities including wood gathering, campsite setup, outdoor cooking, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. The album also includes extensive landscape photography, much of it featuring mountainous forest terrain after a recent forest fire. One photograph appears to feature the south face of Mount Hood, placing the photographers near the route of modern State Highway 26. Other photographs depict preparation of outdoor gear, the front of the Estacada, Oregon train station, travel by wagon, and an unidentified family. Also included are portraits of the album's two primary subjects.
Captions and other identifying text is absent from this album. However, the photographs appear to be arranged in approximate chronological order and form a rough visual narrative.
