Description: Two large mountain ranges are viewed through a wide valley with steep cliffs on both sides, a hanging valley beyond, and an Indian encampment in a meadow beside a river. The distant range is snow-covered, while the nearer one is brown, below a cloudless blue sky. A waterfull tumbles down at the left of a double-peaked rock cliff on the left; another waterfall exits the hanging valley beyond a forest in the back fo the meadow. At the left edge of the forest is a large rock formation, in front of which are a handful of tepees surrounded by several Indians. Near the river and slightly closer to the viewer stand an Indian on horseback, a second Indian the ground, and a child. On the steep slope to the left of the river two conifers stand in front of a rock outcrop. To the right, a snag lies down the river bank. (From a color photograph.)
