Storyline

This travelogue begins along the mighty Columbia River, which snakes it way through much of the state of Oregon's northern border and which eventually empties into the Pacific Ocean at Portland. The river passes through three dams, including Bonneville Dam, forty miles east of Portland and where fish ladders are provided for salmon returning to their spawning grounds. Further upriver, the salmon have a more difficult task of making it up Celilo Falls, a spot where many native fishermen await. A sight of a more man-made nature can be found just outside of Bend where Rasmus Petersen has constructed a miniature village composed primarily of volcanic rock, semi-precious stone and petrified wood. At Crater Lake National Park, bears are now considered somewhat of a menace, but are still a sight for visitors, who should keep at a safe distance. Crater Lake itself used to be the top of a mountain until the walls of the mountain collapsed. It is now a self contained body of water with no ... Written by Huggo

Scenic Oregon (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

With WWII at full speed it prevented James A. FitzPatrick from going overseas so his TravelTalks series stayed in the U.S. and this entry takes us to Oregon where we start off by looking at the Columbia River. We learn some brief history about it before traveling to a location, still owned by Indians, where they make extra cash by fishing in a strange way. We also see a location where fish are released into the river and apparently the record for fish released was just over 10,000 in an eight hour period. From here we travel to Crater Lake National Park where we see the legendary lake and hear about it's rather strange history. We also see some bears fighting for some food, which FitzPatrick says he put there so that they would get in front of his cameras (lets hope they didn't go into a campsite later that night for more and hurt someone). Fans of the series know what to expect and this is another nice entry. The beautiful lake and river look terrific in Technicolor and are good enough to make this 9-minute short worth sitting through.
