This photo depicts a scene showing an individual leading a bridled black horse hauling an indiscernible, covered mound atop a wooden sledge attached behind it. Another person follows closely thereafter, carrying the cord fixed to the towed mass, seemingly in the efforts of stabilizing it. They walk up a slope a stone precipice of stratified rock and below them, downhill, brush and loose rock cover the space. To their right, a rock form with vertical erosion rises like a wall, and to their left is a steep, rocky slope; they could easily fall. Here, though, the rock layers of the hillside can be seen, ultimately fading into the shrubbery and grit that make up the ground.
