A make-shift camp for the night is sometimes a necessity for the western rider. This fellow is using the shelter of a large overhanging rock for protection from the chilling wind and wet snow. His pistol and his straight shooting has provided a rabbit for dinner. He has gathered enough fuel to keep his fire going most of the night. Although he will be warm and dry, his horse is not so fortunate. Things are not so bad as they may seem for the horse. He has been tied to a picket pin with a long lead rope, allowing him to graze and fill his belly too. Keeping his tale to the wind, he also can stay relatively dry and warm.
