Title taken from caption. "View of two individuals using the nozzle to wash out side of hill below a cabin." Cataloguer's ntoe: The two men are barley visible, they can be seen in the far distance (two dark figures) to the left.
This is a close up shot of the water pipeline (hydraulic mining) which extends further into the hill. This location in general appears to be a permafrost area; notice the stunted trees further in the distance.
