The Uinta Mountains. View from Photograph Ridge, elevation 10,829 feet. One of the grandest and most perfect mountain views in the west. The foreground is a picturesque group of the mountain pines. In the middle distance, glimmering in the sunlight like a silver thread, is Blacks Fork, meandering through grass, lawn-like parks, the eye following it up to its sources among the everlasting snows of the summitridge. The peaks or cones in the distance are most distinctly stratified and apparently horizontal, or nearly so, with their summits far above the limits of perpetual snow, and from 1,500 to 2,000 feet above the springs that give rise to the streams below. Summit County, Utah. 1870.

Album caption and index card: Independence Rock. A noted landmark, on the Oregon Trail, for travelers at the time when this route was used. Its base, bordering the old road, is literally covered with names and dates, many of the former well known in the history of the west, and some of them antedating Fremont's time. The Sweetwater flows immediately along the southern end of it, although on the opposite side of the stream another ridge, continuing toward the southwest, was once connected with it. It is a vast and excellent illustration of disintegration, its rounded form resembling an oblong haystack, with layers of rock lapping over the top and sides of the mass.
