"In September 2023, I took my mother, Neva Sanders, age 76, on a day excursion aboard the Eagle Cap Train, Wallowa-Union Railroad. During the trip, I took several landscape photographs, and in one, I noticed that the image of my mother is faintly visible, a reflection from the train window imposing itself on the beauty of the Grande Ronde River. In keeping with the legacy of our forbearers, my mother and I continue to seek out adventure and explore our heritage in the rich history of Northeast Oregon."

Thank you to Rima Sanders for sharing!
