Description

A black-and-white photograph of a view of the river. George Sternberg captured this picture while standing at a place on the right bank. Sternberg's camp can be seen on the right side of the photograph behind a row of trees. A scow can be seen sitting on the bank of the river as well as a rowboat. A scow is a flat-bottomed barge that aided in the carrying of cargo. The river itself splits into two; a small slab of land resting in the middle is the cause of the fork, creating a stream that flows to the right and a stream that flows to the left. In the distance you can see the river continue through the rock outcrop as well as the trees that border the river.
