Artist's Description

This photograph was taken standing on the crest of Line Mountain facing north toward Selinsgrove,which is visible in the distance.The large island bearing cropland,partly shown on the left is Hoover Island.To the right or upstream,also bearing cropland,is Little Hoover Island;informally often called Mason’s Island.The large,fully wooded island still further upstream and somewhat lost in the distance is Fisher’s Island.
The railroad track and siding that follow the river’s eastern bank were once owned by the celebrated PRR and now carry the “Rearing Mustang”.The brown,bare ground area along the track is a grain handling facility under construction.The small village of Fisher’s Ferry is located right where the track disappears into the woodland.
That triangle-shaped area of cropland located on the west bank of the river is known as the Isle of Que.Penn’s Creek empties into the river right next to the Isle of Que’s point;toward the photo’s left.Just downstream of Penn’s Creek’s mouth is PA. Fish and Boat Commission’s Hoover Island Access Area,a public boat launch facility. The PA. Game Commission also uses this facility as the dock for the barge used to ferry farm equipment to the Hoover Islands which they own and have farmed by a nearby farmer.
US Routes 11&15 follows the river’s west bank and hidden among the trees.However the bare rock cliffs formed when the highway was constructed are quite visible.The length of highway that passes beneath these cliffs is locally known as the" Aquaduct Narrows";named after the aquaduct that once was there to carry the canal across Penn’s Creek.
