A black-and-white photograph of three men on a boat and scow. One man on the left has a long pole in his hand. On the scow are two flagpoles and flags. The scow is made of a white canvas with a stove pipe coming out the top. A man on the right holds a rope attached to a small white motorboat that floats in front of the scow. At the bottom of the photo is tree branches with leaves on them. On the left-hand top of the photo are several trees that are partially in the water due to the swollen stream. In the background there is a long row of trees along the opposite shoreline.

The camp here is well out of the current but we were kept on the watch at night for fear the water would fall as fast as it raised and leave our scow high and dry
