This photograph is of a reflection of the power transmission towers at the Wilder Dam, a facility built in 1950 on the site of the old Olcott Falls. The plant generates 42 Megawatts of power, and is operated by PG&E Generating.

The view is from the Lebanon side of the river- behind the towers lies "Kilowatt Field", the Town of Hartford recreation area (great name!).

J Forward, Roger Daum, Michael Hanchett, Jim Tyson, Becky Luce, Rene Hazelton, and Kevin French were the first with correct guesses (we're not sure we got any incorrect guesses).
