Description

Color photo. Scene of a railroad running through a canyon. The jagged canyon walls jut out from the left and right sides of the frame with dry dessert shrubbery in the bottom left corner. The railroad extends from the bottom center of the frame, runs along the bottom of the canyon floor winding its way up the center of the frame where the canyon opens up and the horizon can be seen. Erosion can be seen on the canyon wall on the right with pine trees scattered throughout
