Heading West in 19C America

William Hahn (German-born American artist, 1829-1887) Return from Glacier Point.  In The Return Trip from Glacier Point, an elegantly attired party of both men & women on horses & mules descends from a mountain. Two of the travelers are stopping in the shade to water the horses & themselves, while the rest of the party descends to the flat area. Built as a horse toll trail in 1872 by James McCauley, this scenic trail was initially known as the Four Mile Trail.
