Verso: on right side of lower stretcher bar, "Mt. Shasta", in the artist's characteristic block-letter hand in black brush.
Provenance: private collection, San Francisco, c. 1890, by descent in the family c. 1925, again in 1950, and again in 1987, to private collection, Livermore, California.
Site: Mount Shasta, viewed from the southeast or east, through an unidentified valley.
Description: A party on horseback traverses a wide green valley leading toward a stratovolcano that rises out of the haze beyond a series of inceasingly indistinct ridges. The front edge of the painting is completely lined with boulders nestled in weeds; a snag lies across the boulders near the center. Several tall conifers stand at the near left edge while a few more are more distant at the right. (From a color photograph.)
