With a strong science background he didn't over dramatize what they encountered, but instead gave some of the most exacting and readily identifiable images for parts of the territorial West. This beautiful image throughout the Yellowstone area from the junction of the East Fork and the main Yellowstone to the "Grand Canon" of the Yellowstone.
