Friday, 16th. Traveled about 10 miles and encamped opposite the Wind River mountains where we were in full view of many lofty peaks glittering with eternal snow and frost under the blaze of a July sun.
The trail may have been tough but the scenery was grand!
Sorry I couldn’t find a better copy of this painting. It gives you a good idea of what the Bidwell-Bartleson Party was viewing in western Wyoming.
