Color photo. View from a mountain looking at other mountains. In the bottom right corner is a partial view of the mountain that the photo is taken from. Rocky terrain with a flat grassy area with what looks to be a trail running through. Moving on to the middle ground is a large rocky mountain, and at its peak the ridges filled with snow forms a cross which gives the mountain it's name, Mount Of the Holy Cross. Beyond in the background are more mountain ranges.
