When the railroad was completed from Portland to the Dalles in 1882, it gave photographers easier access to scenes like this. Rooster Rock has marks the entrance to the Columbia Gorge, as was noted by Lewis and Clark when they camped nearby in 1805. Clark wrote in his journal: "We encamped under a high projecting rock. Here the mountains leave the river on each Side. Which from the grand shute to this place is high and rugid.” (November 2, 1805) -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
