Description: A nearly-white plains-style tepee stands just above the beach by the right edge of a lake at the base of a steep hillside covered with conifer forests. In the middle distance is a large, rocky mountain; behind it stnds a distant snow-covered ridge below a bright but cloudy sky. On the beach, halfway between the tepee and the viewer is a snag.
