Summary

Mt. Ida, shown in the background, reveals an almost perfect pyramid shaped peak with hanging glacier, swept faces and icy ridges. In the foreground, there is a tent and what appears to be a campfire, surrounded by horses grazing. From S. Prescott Fay's field notes for 1914 expedition, handwritten caption reads "Mt. Ida 11000 ft."
