Description: The isolated, round-topped, snow-capped mountain below a hazy blue sky is the only thing that extends above a flat horizon to the left. A wide, bright, river enters from behind trees on the right bank and leaves on the left, reflecting the bright sky above. On a point extending out from the right bank of the river is an Indian encampment, with a tepee, a campfire, and figures sitting next to racks with drying fish. Two birds are in flight, silhouetted against the river. On the right a grove of trees stands silhouetted against the sky; two separated trees of almost equal height stand above the rest. (From a color photograph.)
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title, based on the similarity of this painting to [Mount Adams from the Yakima River 1].
