Black-and-white stereophotograph mounted on a yellow card, showing a mountain landscape. The rocks of the mountains are variegated in color; some of the darker areas may be where there are trees growing. There appears to be a body of water of sorts in the foreground, along the bottom edge of each image. Printed in black on the front of this card is "Watkins' Pacific Coast. / 429 Montgomery Street, San Francisco. / Entered According to Act of Congress, in the year 1867, by C.E. Watkins, / in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States / for the Northern District of California. / The Royal Arches, from Glacier Point, / 1150. / Yosemite Valley, Mariposa County, Cal." Handwritten in pencil on the back of the cars is "FLS."
