Paradise Valley, August 1898

This photo of Paradise Valley was taken by an Eatonville family in August 1898. The mountain hasn’t changed much in the last 120 years, but not so back on lower ground. The Spanish-American War was taking place and Caleb Badham was naming his new soft drink — Pepsi-Cola.

Truman to the crown prince of Norway, proving that the lovely Paradise Valley landscape is truly fit for a king.” (www.threebearslodge.net)
