Scene at Artist’s Glen near Manitou Springs, Colorado. Two men in suits relax on benches that are on a boulder in Englemann Canyon; one of them holds an open book towards the camera. Mosquito netting covers the area in which they sit, and there is a small waterfall upstream from the boulder. A rustic wooden ladder leans on the boulder and crosses Ruxton Creek at this reststop four miles up the Pike’s Peak trail. A man’s feet and a small carrying case are in the lower right, and forest fills the background.
