By placing two small figures on the tracks, photographer Crawford adds some human interest and a sense of scale to this photo of railroad tracks rounding Upper Cape Horn, on the Oregon side of the Columbia River near Celilo Falls. Note some of the other views of Upper Cape Horn in the Related Photos section below. Also note that "Upper Cape Horn" is not the same rock formation as the current "Cape Horn", downstream on the Washington side. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
