This photograph shows a person perhaps a man face obscured by a hat, leading a bridled black horse up a rocky slope. He wears clothing that covers him from neck to toe: pants and a long-sleeved shirt. The horse tows a tarp-covered mass (petrified trees) atop a wooden sledge, and an individual following behind helps stabilize the indiscernible load, carrying a cord attached to it. This individual also wears a hat and loose-fitting, light-colored overalls. In the background, stratified outcroppings rise, and in the foreground, loose rock and brush can be seen, making up the side of the slope upon which the men and horse walk up.
