With a title so specifically naming a location, Fairman seems to want to document where he sketched in the White Mountains. Painters took care to capture profiles of well-known peaks, yet, here, the mountains in the background almost fade into atmospheric haze. In the foreground, dead trees and large jagged rocks hint at a wilderness not far off, examples of imagery popular in Hudson River School paintings.
