Made Summer, 1963, Great Salt Lake Desert, Utah.

View northwest. The blue line approximates the trail which runs from bottom to top. Having proceeded mostly northwest across the flat the trail turns a little to the west at Silver Island Point, lower right. The arrow marks Donner-Reed Pass where the trail crosses the narrow neck of land connecting Silver Island, left, and Crater Island, right. Beyond the pass the trail crosses the final eight miles of flat bearing slightly north of due west before reaching Donner Spring, at the foot of Pilot Peak, out of the picture on the left.
