This image was taken as part of the Hayden Survey of western Wyoming and Colorado, which later led to the formation of the U.S. Geological Surveys of the Territories within the Department of the Interior. William Henry Jackson, then a budding photographer, took thousands of photographs for the Hayden Survey, most notably the first images of the headwaters of the Yellowstone River. Pictured are Charles R. Campbell, Frank H. Bradley, William Henry Holmes, John Merle Coulter, William Henry Jackson, and Albert Charles Peale, and others. The group is camped in front of mountains.
