Description
A road winds around grass covered hills. Trees grow on the hills and clouds are visible in the sky. Using archival records, Gonzales-Day went searching for California's historic hang trees. While some of the locations of the trees in this series are certain, others were taken in approximate locations that corresponded to the historical data available. For more information, see Lynching in the West: 1850-1935 (Duke, 2006). This image was taken along the way (near Mt. Diablo).
