The rest of the group gathers at the back of the vehicle. Wilhelmina West stands in the tonneau with her body turned to the right and her head turned towards the camera. Frances West is just to her left and is only partially visible as she peeks behind Wilhelmina. Elizabeth West stands on the ground in front of the rear tire and below Wilhelmina and Frances. She holds shrubbery from the surrounding landscape in her hands and looks directly to the camera. The car is laden with travel gear that is piled up on the running board near the front tire and attached to the rear of the vehicle. The group and the car are surrounded by shrubbery; brush grows in front of the side of the car. Hills occupy the background.

Someone sits with their back to the camera on the near end of a beam that extends out from between the spokes of the rear wheel towards the camera. Another beam in the water rests beneath it and runs perpendicularly to it. A man in shadow walks behind the rear end of the car with his back to camera. The river flows in the foreground.
