Description

The image contains a sepia-toned image of a snow-covered camp. Several tents, a flag, and buildings are shown covered halfway up with snow. A man and a woman stand rear-facing in the image's foreground, and other campers can be seen in the distance. The Aerial Railway is pictured at the image's top. The image is adhered to a peach-colored paper card mount, and documentary information appears on the card's reverse.
