Seven men pose outside Jim Ganson's saloon in Idlewild, Colorado; the log building has a ragged board gable roof, and two Schlitz signs are at the corners of the front. A diamond-shaped sign in the window reads "Navy." One man holds what appears to be a carpenter's square and another drinks from a bottle. A log is in the muddy road in front, and other logs, a sawhorse, and a scraggly evergreen tree are by the building; tall evergreen trees are on the mountain behind.
