Photograph depicting three men of the Colorado Mountain Club posing in front of a large boulder next to a campfire. At their feet are sleeping bags and blankets. The caption in the album notes, "Three Weary Willies," indicating that the men were possibly named William. The photograph was shot by fellow Colorado Mountain Club member George Harvey, Jr. (1876-1960) during a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in 1913. Harvey was heavily involved with the Colorado Mountain Club, which was formed in 1912 with twenty-five charter members. The group led organized hikes and climbs around Colorado, advocated for wilderness protection and preservation, and lobbied for the creation of Rocky Mountain National Park. George Harvey, Jr. served the Club in a number of capacities; he acted on the Board of Directors from 1913-1922, Vice President in 1920, President 1921-circa 1922, and on the Outing Committee from 1913-1915, 1917-1918, and 1920. Harvey's involvement with the Club post-1923 is unknown. Part of the George Harvey, Jr. photograph albums (Ph.00094).
