Description:
This image shows a view on Camel's Hump. During the late 19th century there were buildings in this area. Today the area is filled with trees and other vegetation. Schist outcrop in foreground. Kimberley Beal writes on 2008-01-24: The area shown is in the sub-alpine or fir zone of the mountain. Up-right Balsam Firs give way to stunted krummholz trees of the same species just before the alpine vegetation of the summit. Heart-Leaved Birch and Black Spruce also grow with firs in sub alpine forests.

Description:
Back reads, "House & Barn on Camel's Hump, Vt." The stereoview shows a view from above of a house, barn, and outhouse in a small clearing on Camel's Hump. The clearing appears to have been recently cleared with several stumps and tree debris in the area. There are several outcrops in the area including a large outcrop in the foreground. There are some people (possibly the family who owns the house) standing and sitting on an outcrop to the right of the house. There is a lighter colored area near the house suggesting soil erosion. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2007-02-01: The site of this view is in Duxbury, which was one of the several grants made by Benning Wentworth in 1763. It was one of the poorest, being rocky & very hilly, with many brooks & streams that flow into the Winooski. Samuel Ridley owned acres of timber land a ran a large sawmill. Samuel Jr. was much more interested in the tourist business. He first buit a fine hotel in Duxbury near the RR station He first built a road & then a bridle path up the mountain and the guest house seen in this photo.
