Description: Three tepees stand on a green point on the right side of a river that flows gently through a flat valley. In the right foreground is a brownish boulder; behind it two prominent white rocks stand at the river's edge; a fallen, dead tree lies propped aross the higher one. A grove that includes a few tall, dark green, trees stands on the right behind the tepees; closer to the river banks are lower, rounder trees with greenish-yellow foliage. The sky is filled with white, purple, and grey clouds; the water reflects these colors among its ripples. (From a color photograph.)
