Description

Colored photo. A river moves diagonally to the middle ground from the foreground with power line poles and railroad running alongside. Next to the rail road is the base of a rocky cliff framing the right side of the photo. To the left on the other side of the river are large red rock formations with pine trees and erosion at their bases. In the background stands a mountain.
