Although there is no location given for this photo, it compares favorably by date the photo was taken, by the descriptive direction arrows in 2000.1.1207, and by the general topography, so that it is safe to name the scene as the Truckee River, Highway 40, and the Southern Pacific railroad tracks paralleling one another in the canyon east of Truckee, California. The town of Truckee would be upstream from the lower left corner.
