Business end of a Saturn V S-1C rocket with the Vehicle Assembly Building in the background.

1/3 here. These are all shots of the Willamette River and the paper/lumber mill in Oregon City. In addition, the navigation locks appear on the right bank.

2/3, more shots of the paper mill and falls. The locks were recently closed due to budget constraints, but the mills are still open.
