Description
Photograph of men standing at the entrance to Superstition Canyon in Death Valley, California, ca.1900/1950. The silhouettes of two men are visible at center, dwarfed by the rock faces to either side of them which shades them from the hot, desert sun beyond. Debris from the rock faces litter the ground between the them. The desert is visible through the pass.
