EXPLORING TRIP INTO THE DUCK MOUNTAINS
This is the summer of 1923 and a recurring pattern of going up on the Duck Mountains and looking for the lake sources of the rivers. So this is the Duck River's gorge.
The lake photos are nearly indistinguishable, but I think this is labeled "Lake Wellman, headwaters of the Roaring River."
This one says, "Where the Roaring River begins." In both of these two photos Bruce demonstrated a nice sense of framing. I don't know whether that was something he learned from a book or whether it was just a natural aesthetic sense, but it works pretty well.
The third lake is the most monotonous. It says, "Another feeder lake for the Roaring River."
I wonder what would have happened if he'd take up geology instead of wool-buying.
