Description

This photograph looks over rough rock formations, and near the center of the picture, one individual face obscured by a hat leads a bridled black horse toward the camera, down a rocky outcropping, another hatted individual, likely a man, following closely behind. They both wear loose-fitting clothing, covered from toe to neck. The man leading the horse wears pants and a long-sleeved shirt; the man following wears overalls and a light-colored, long-sleeved shirt. Both wear wide-brimmed hats. The follower€ holds a cord attached to a tarp-covered mound (the petrified trees) resting atop a wooden sledge, which the horse drags. Behind the three, layered rock formations rise in the background, jagged and diverse in size. Toward the right of the people and horse, one of these rock forms rises, shrubbery, brush, and loose rock taking up the foreground and left side of the picture. The rock face on the right shows much vertical erosion.
