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. Thin layers have been broken off in part, and huge...

Album caption and index card: Badlands on Laramie River. From the Chugwater, we cross table-like plains for 10 miles, and descend to the beautiful valley of the Laramie. The Tertiary rocks near the crossing have weathered into quite remarkable architectural forms, much like those of White River of Dakota. The texture is similar also, with marls and calcareous concretions, passing up into fine sandstone, which decompose so readily that valleys and the hills are covered with loose sand. Platte County, Wyoming. 1870.

Album caption and index card: View of the Colorado or Front Range from near Gold Hill, as seen from Bald Mountain, about 3 miles west from the Ward mining district, embracing a view from Long's Peak on the north, to near Arapahoe on the south. In the foreground is one of the little snow-fed lakes, so numerous throughout the mountains, and forming a pleasant variety to the monotony of numberless snow-white peaks. Although this view was made late in June, it will be seen that the hillsides are heavily draped in a mantle of snow, lying very deep through all the forest. The difficulty of reaching even this altitude was very great, requiring most laborious plunging through the thick timber and deep drifts. At the extreme...
