Details

In 1903, Roosevelt visited Oregon as part of an eight-week, 25-state tour of the American west. He gave a total of 263 speeches, seven or eight per day on average, in his five and a half weeks of public appearances.

The balance of the time he spent camping in back country: two days at Yosemite with conservation activist John Muir, and 16 days, April 8-24, in Yellowstone. While a strong advocate of the creation of Crater Lake National Park the previous year, he did not visit it. He did ride his train north through Salem and Oregon, and this photo is labeled "North of Portland, May 22, 1903".
