Description

Exterior. In this color photograph, three men on horseback are at center. The horses, two white and one brown, stand in a shallow river which curves through the image. The river bed is punctuated with rocks small and large, and has green grassy banks on either side. Behind the men on horseback is a extremely tall wall of red rock. At the top of the red rock ledge are green trees.
