A black and white photograph that shows a horse pulling a wooden wagon along a narrow ridge. The horse, wearing a blanket and a harness, is pulling the wagon containing rock, equipment, and a man. The man is standing in the wagon holding reins. The wagon wheels roll close to the edge of the ridge. Below the ridge lies a steep drop-off. Another smaller horse walks in front of the horse pulling the wagonâ€”but the smaller horse does not appear to be harnessed. Two men walk behind the wagon and carry extra equipment. The men wear narrow-brimmed hats, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts. They are surrounded by miles of badlands consisting of sedimentary sandstone, siltstone, and claystone.
