RM Series

 

RM1 Requa: Roof of the Brooks house, before it collapsed. A print is known with the following label on its front:

OCT 1957

Written on its back in Mrs. Roberts' handwriting:

Roof of Brooks house

I assume that this is an early photograph, taken between 1915 and 1930, which Mrs. Roberts had reprinted in 1957. Mrs. Roberts' identification appears to be correct.

 

RM2 Requa: The old white man who lived on Turkey Island.

 

RM3 Requa: The old white man who lived on Turkey Island. A print of this shot exists, printed on the front with the date:

OCT 1957

On the reverse in Mrs. Roberts' hand is the legend:

Dr S A Barret-left Dept, Anthropology, U.C Taken about 62

This legend is totally incorrect, for I knew Sam Barrett and this is not he. Both men had similar beards, and I must assume that Mrs. Roberts labelled the back of this shot when she was nearly blind.

RM88 Klamath River scene from the ridge above it. [J. W.: Klamath River from hills to east. Was probably taken on the north end of Starwein Ridge, ca. three miles east of Klamath Glen, which shows left of center on the flat to the right of the river. USGS Ship Mt. 15' quad shows a low standard road in this vicinity coming up from the latter and continuing up to Red Mt.]

 

RM89 "High Country." [J. W.: Klamath--further uphill. Seems to be a more northwesterly view from the same position as RM88, showing the ascending ridge and behind it Terwer Creek.]

 

RM90 "High Country." [J. W.: Klamath River--further uphill.]

 

RM91 "High Country." [J. W.: Bare ridge.]

 

RM92 "High Country." [J. W.: Bare ridge (out of focus). . .with low stunted, dead trees in foreground.]

 

RM93 "High Country." [J. W.: Prayer seat (semicircular) atop large piece of bedrock. Brushy ridge in background, and an unusual rock outcrop (50' high?) almost obscured by trees. Approx. 30 rocks. Another, flatter, rock outcrop visible in far distance (RM94?), off the ridge and separated from the viewer by trees.]

 

RM94 "High Country." [J. W.: Possible prayer seat. This one is surrounded by more brush than above and is located on more of an irregular bedrock surface. Partially bare ridge in distance with a large rock outcrop (RM93?).]

 

RM95 "High Country." [J. W.: Trees and snow patch (underexposed).]

 

RM96 Lake in "High Country." [J. W.: Small pond (50-100' diam.) surrounded by fairly tall trees and some grassland. Man standing on opposite shore.]

 

RM97 "High Country." [J. W.: Tall trees with a possible rock feature beneath.]

 

RM98 "High Country." [J. W.: Trail, trees, snow patch and woman (?). Hill in distance brushy on one side, timbered on other.]

 

RM99 Red Mountain: "High Country." [J. W.: Stunted trees and glade area. Pilling's notes identify this and the following four scenes as "Red Mt."]

 

RM100 Red Mountain: "High Country." [J. W.: Trail (?) through dead, stunted trees. (Out of focus.)]

 

RM101 Red Mountain: Timber line scrub in "High Country." [J. W.: Mouth of Klamath as viewed from high country to east (out of focus). This location can be fairly accurately identified as Red Mt., probably the trail just to the south and west, Section 14, T. 13 N., R. 2 E. The bend in the Klamath in the far distance is the one immediately south of Klamath, with Flint Ridge the highest point beyond.]

 

RM102 Red Mountain: From "High Country" looking down on the Klamath River. [J. W.: Same as above, except from a position further down the hill to the west. The mid-foreground shows the same terrain as at the beginning of the trip (cf. RM88, 89, 80).]

 

RM103 Red Mountain: The remains of a medicine altar in the "High Country." [J. W.: "Remains of a medicine altar in 'high country'" (Pilling's notes). Amorphous pile of 75-100 various-sized rocks. Although the immediate setting is different, the shadows indicate this was taken at about the same time (mid-day) as RM102. Low brush and low-medium-sized trees widely spaced show in the background. Appears to be situated on a gentle (5-10 degree) sideslope.]

 

RM104 Prairie in the "High Country." [J. W.: Large prairie, about 200x200 yds., ringed by tall, thick trees. Snow patches indicate the view here is approx. SW.]

 

RM105 "High Country." [J. W.: Brush, xeric slope with large, irregular rock outcrop on ridge in distance.]

 

RM106 Mountains in the "High Country." [J. W.: View of Doctor Rock and Peak 8 from the west. Ridge in lower righthand corner may be the same as in the upper lefthand corner of RM98. Was taken from somewhere east of Red Mt. Lookout and west of Doctor/Peak 8, probably closer to the former. The drainage visible in the middle background is either Crescent City Fork Blue Creek, or Goose Creek, an effluent of South Fork Smith River (cf. JWC 4-17-75:28).]

 

RM107 A valley in the "High Country." [J. W.: Looking down broad, deep, heavily timbered valley, series of distinctive-looking ridge systems and peaks in the distance. Furthest peak may be Preston, which would make this the Smith River watershed. May have been taken from a point on the Boundary Trail a mile or so southeast of Red Mt. Meadow (RM104?). If so, the view is northeast of the upper Goose Creek drainage. Such an interpretation is consistent with the far peaks; the largest and highest is probably Preston Peak, ca. 25 miles distant.]

 

RM108 Trees in the "high country." [J. W.: Trail in heavy timber.]

 

RM109 Trees in the "High Country." [J. W.: Trail in light timber.]
