Vintage Camping

My mother’s aunt, Bertha McGhee taught in New Mexico back in 1929 – 1930. She and some friends had some time away which they spent camping out in a small cabin and cooking over an open fire.

I wish I could see the face better, but this does look like Bertha McGhee

We don’t know the location or who the other women are. It’s likely that they are also teachers or staff from the Navajo Indian School.

Here’s one more photo that must be from this same camping trip.

It looks like this woman has dark hair and is not Bertha.

This post was inspired by the Sepia Saturday weekly photo challenge. Here is their photo of two ladies making tea over a fire in Australian in 1915. Take a look at some of the other bloggers to see how they responded to the challenge.

Here’s more information about the Navajo Indian School in Farminton, NM. I also have a post about another outing of Bertha and Friends.
