The tall walls of the canyon surround the river. The Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad runs along the canyon wall to the right. A train is running down the tracks in the photo. In the background is a mountain peak covered in trees. This photograph can be found on page 185 of John Fielder's Book, Colorado 1870-2000 Second Edition.
