Description

Black and white. An elevated view into a canyon reveals a river and train tracks. The river and tracks enter from the lower left corner of the picture, and disappear in the center of the picture. Two men at a distance stand between the river and tracks, backs to the camera; the man to our right, points his right hand/arm upward.
