Description

A black-and-white photograph of a close-up view of the ripple marks found on the east side of the river. The ripple marks are split by numerous cracks in the rock itself. The cracks themselves are called mud cracks, meaning that the sediment has contracted and split over time. These ripple marks, upon close inspection, appear to have been created by the water moving from the Northeast to Southwest per the angle of the picture. On the bottom right side of the photograph the handle of a brush can be seen as well as a small tape measure. On the left-hand side of the photograph a small white ink splotch from Sternberg's pen can be found.
