Photograph of River Camp on Bass Trail, Grand Canyon, ca.1900-1930. Two men sit near a make-shift tent created by stretching a tarp across a pile of stones. One man is eating while the other, George Wharton James, with a beard, examines his own worn-out shoe. A third man, wearing a backpack stands nearby. Small piles of camping gear sit around the site including pails, cooking implements, a shovel, bedrolls and clothing. The camp is situated on a gently sloping area covered with stones and brush here and there. The tent is erected on a natural rocky terrace in the slope. In the background the eroded rocky walls of the canyon rise up.
