Two mountain men, dressed in fringe leather and mounted on horses, lead a herd of pack animals across hills overlooking a vast valley. One man has removed his hat and is enthusiastically speaking while the other disgruntledly listens. Dusky shadows begin to envelop them, highlighting the face of the orator and the warm hues of the valley below. The vast cloudy sky adds a sense of grandeur to the scene.
