Distant view of the the Schmitz, Scullin and West party campsite. 4 tents stand in the distance. The tent on the left is obscured by a parked automobile. A large tree extends out of frame behind the large, white tent pitched on the right. A hillside occupies the background.
Photograph, from left to right, of Irene Schmitz, Frances West, Chester Schmitz and Elizabeth West posing in a clearing in their campsite at Silver Lake. The 4 children stand right-of-center, in a row and hold hands. All look to the camera; Elizabeth West frowns. Behind and to the left of Irene, the camp stove sits on the ground. A pot sits atop one of the stove's burners. Clothes and towels hang over downed tree branches at left. Tall grasses line the back edge of the campsite. A mountain rises in the background.
Photograph of a stream near Silver Lake flowing through the wilderness. A wooden plank functions as barrier on the left bank of the stream. It extends from the lower left corner towards the center. A pool from a waterfall (out-of-frame, right) sits in the lower right corner; the stream is at its widest here and narrows as it flows towards the left. The pool spills over a small waterfall and then flows into the distance at left. A jagged boulder stands on the stream's bank at right in the near distance. Trees stand in the background along the bank.
Photograph, from left to right, of Dave F. Smith, Isabelle Smith, Nella West and Mary A. West in their camp at Thompsons. Dave F. Smith sits to the left at a small table. He faces towards the camera as he dines and tilts his head downward. Isabelle Smith crouches down at center and to the left of the camp stove. She appears to be cooking and faces towards the right. Pots and pans sit atop the stove and on the ground near Isabelle. Nella West stands behind the stove and looks off towards the left. Mary A. West stands at right, in profile, and looks down to the left towards Isabelle and the stove. Trees stand along the back edge of the camp at right and a small hill rises behind the camp at left.
Photograph, from left to right, of Dave F. Smith and Isabelle Smith riding in their EMF as the drive through the pines en route to Casa Diablo from Thompsons. The car is at center and is viewed at an angle from the front; it faces slightly right as it travels along a dirt road. Dave F. Smith sits in the driver's seat at left and Isabelle sits to his right. They both look to the camera. Pine cones litter the ground around them. Pine trees stand in the distance.
Photograph, from left to right, of Frances West, Ted McClellan and Elizabeth West hanging around the campsite near the base of a mountainside. Frances and Elizabeth stand at center and to the right of the back end of a vehicle. Frances stands closest to the car and looks down at something in her hands. Elizabeth stands to the right of Frances. She wears a bonnet and holds a fishing rod. Her other hand rests on her hip. A pot sits on the ground in front of her. The girls stand behind about 15 fish hanging from string. The string is attached to the car at left, is supported by a stick at center and continues out of the photograph at right. Ted McClellan stands behind and between the girls in the near distance. He leans against the driver's side of another car and looks downward. He wears a hat and holds a strap in his hands. A child (maybe Ted McClellan's son) stands to the left and behind Frances with his back to camera. Mountains rise in the background. A person's shadow enters the image at the bottom of the photograph on the left. A white blur cuts through the shadow.
Photograph of Convict Lake with mountains standing in the background beyond the opposite bank. The shore of the lake stretches on an angle from the lower left up towards the right. The opposite bank extends on a horizontal about halfway up the image. From the opposite bank, a mountain rises at center.
