Photography of a view of Death Valley at the north end, showing sand hills and deadwood, California, ca.1900/1950. Branches from a gnarled piece of deadwood extend out of a large pile of sand and what appears to be peat at the left of the photo. More small, severe branches extend from the sand in the foreground, which has been blown into a corrugated pattern by the wind. A small dune is situated to the right. Low-growing vegetation dapples the expanse in the background, where mountains can also be seen on the horizon.
