Artist's Description

150 years ago it was a woolen mill that used hydro power at the falls of the Willamette river. Now the Blue Heron Paper mill straddles the falls. Logs no longer float along the river to the mill, but diesel trucks do the job. Logging, fishing and farming were the mainstays of the Oregon territory. Now high tech, sport cloths, mining, aerospace, and others have have moved in. Even though by air the view reveals a patchwork of harvest and growth that interrupts these regal forest lands, this is what continues to define the identity of the great north west.
