This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The top photo shows the Bear Paw shales along the Judith River. The foreground of this photo shows plenty of grass and plant life. The midsection of the photo shows the river, and beyond the river is a large geological formation or outcropping that contains the Bear Paw shales. The bottom photograph shows the Judith River riverbeds which have been shoved up through the Bear Paw shales. This photo also displays plenty of plant life including grass, sagebrush, and cedar trees. The shales are visible on the left side of the photo at the bottom of the hills.
