This black-and-white photograph depicts a campsite tent on a scow viewed from downstream. The raft upon which the tent sits is tethered to the shore on the left side of the picture. The photo features the river, the near shore on the left-hand side, and the far shore and a railroad bridge crossing the river in the background of the shot. Piles of wood and a small worn path / road can be seen behind the trees. The path / road appears to have been used for vehicle-based transportation of materials. This is the site of the scow's construction, as seen in later photos.
