A black and white photo of the Sternberg camp on a rising Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada. Six crew members are standing on the front of the scow. The water level of the river is high. Large logs are floating in the river. The scow is near the riverbank. Tall hills are visible in the background on the opposite side of the river. Trees and many bushes are growing on the closer riverbank. Brush is pictured on the hills in the background. The sky is clear. It is daytime. Two crew members are holding large poles that are partially submerged in the water. The transcription at the bottom of the photo states that the date is June 27th.
