Late afternoon light strikes these red buttes during the summer over Dead Indian Pass which leads to Sunlight Basin.  Heart Mountain looms in the distance with Pat O'Hara on the right.  Below the red buttes was the wagon road connecting Cody, Wyoming to Sunlight.  Travelers would rest at Walter's Inn at the base of the butte.  The meadows catch moisture with frequent storms that carpet the meadows with lush green grasses.
