Two properly attired women manage their rowboats in the foreground of this idyllic scene at Castle Rock, now known as Beacon Rock, on the Columbia River. At about this time, in 1901, the rock was climbed for the first time, by climbers who left spikes and ropes in place for others who followed. In 1904 the rock was purchased by Charles Ladd, who essentially saved it for future generations, as there were plans to blast it and use pieces to create a jetty at the mouth of the Columbia.
