Photograph album depicting the landscape and participants of a pack trip to the Grand Canyon along the Mystic Springs and Hange trails, including views of boating on the Colorado River, Cataract Creek Canyon, the Havasupai Indian Agency, Havasupai Point and the Painted Desert.
These images are followed by a series of photographs of the Hopi pueblos of Walpi and Oraibi, showing flute and basket dancers, domestic scenes such as tending corn plants and grinding corn, spinning, weaving, making pottery, and tending children. There are several scenes in the pueblos that show the campers from the earlier series of Grand Canyon views.
A series of ten portraits of Navajo Indians follows the Hopi scenes. These are followed by a picture of a women with a 216 lb. tuna hoisted beside her, and then by a series of poor quality snapshots of a big horn sheep hunting trip and several color postcards of British Columbia.
