Welcome to the Spencer Collection

9. Tepee at Meadow Lake.

The glass lantern slide is showing the wooden frame of a very large structure, identified as a tipi. The structure is made of numerous large pieces of lumber arranged in a circle and coming to a point at the top. In the center there is a man holding onto one of the timbers and appears to be climbing up toward the top. In the foreground are several other timbers, possibly from another tipi frame.
