Views from a Passing Mark Twain

Three nice views from the Mark Twain. First off is everyone's favorite piece of infrastructure, Fowler's Harbor. The shot looks like it was an overcast day.

The second is of a place I have not posted in a while, the burning settlers cabin. This looks fairly early as the vegetation is still sparse.

The final one is of the saluting Indian. Here he is on the lower slope and much more visible. In later years, he was moved on to the higher slope and closer to the railroad tracks.

Always liked the harvested stalks in the early settler's cabin scene. The little details sure make a difference.

Hmmm, is the land near the Indian Chief normally so bare? Even in early views it seems that he is normally surrounded by brush and plants. Wonder what was going on at this time?

Major -- He's on a horse, so obviously he's going to move around. :)
