Lovely shot. I really like black and white photos. They show more detail.
That was something about the tunnel disaster. Thank God for OSHA today.

The river seems wider now and more trees......I love the overlook they built too.

That's such a fantastic photo, and most especially because your mother took it so long ago. Grand view.

It looks like a very Beautiful part of the country, Judy. Isn't amazing how many gorgeus places and areas there are in these United States?

The water level was low when your mother took the photo. I wonder if that was a drought year.

Nice photo, there was a lot of silting in the rivr back then! But then, there was less control on dumping the waste rock from mining.
