Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These black-and-white photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The top photograph depicts a badland scene on the Missouri River in Montana. The foreground of the photo shows a small valley between some hills, and farther back in the photo, the badlands are visible. The second photograph also shows the badlands on the Missouri River. Beyond the badlands, the Little Rocky Mountains are visible in the distance. The third photograph shows Dog Creek. Beyond the creek, Eagle sandstone is pushing up through the earth, and the Judith River is lying on Claggett shale. Underneath each of these photos is an inscription written by Sternberg.
