Description: A cabin or farmhouse, partly obscured behind a wood fence, stands against the forest on a rise to the left of a dirt road. A man (and perhaps a child) walks down the dirt road at the center. The road departs from the right center over a rise in the right middle distance, beyond which is seen a low mountain peak. There are brush and low trees on both sides of the road, and boulders and debris lie along the rise on the left side of the road. (From a very faded color photograph.)
Identification: Descriptive title of unknown origin, as found in the Hassler letter in the Oakland Museum artist's file on Schafer.
