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 shows the Eagle formation within some hills or outcroppings in Montana. The foreground of this photo is filled with grass, sagebrush, and other plant life. A small group of coniferous trees is visible in the middle of the photo on the slope of the second hill. The second photograph shows the badlands near the Judith River and Cow Island. The land in the foreground is smooth and covered in grass. The badlands are rockier and have trees at the tops of the outcroppings. The third photograph shows the badlands looking over the Judith River. The foreground of this photograph has many trees. The river is visible in the valley. The middle left of the photo shows the badlands. Underneath each of these photographs is an inscription written by Sternberg.
