  STS068-264-053 Medford and Grants Pass, Oregon, U.S.A. October 1994
Medford, a tourism, trade, shipping, and medical center in southwest Oregon, is visible at the center of this low-oblique, east-southeast-looking photograph. The city, the headquarters for Crater Lake National Park and the Rogue River National Forest, also has fruit-packing plants and lumber mills. Between 1836 and 1856, the area was the scene of numerous bloody conflicts between white settlers and the Rogue River Indians. Grants Pass, 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Medford on the Rogue River in the heavily forested Klamath Mountains, has important lumber and agricultural enterprises. The area produces fruits, nuts, vegetables, and dairy products and is the commercial center of a large region that produces flower bulbs (especially gladioli). Other commercial interests include salmon fishing and mining. Upper Klamath Lake is visible near the upper left of the photograph, west of which is relatively young Mount McLoughlin Volcano.
