The Palmer water tower is prominent in middle ground, with fuel storage tanks, a small building and a railroad tank car adjacent. Two pump houses on the water supply line from the north are visible in middle ground, as is a large unidentified machine. In far middle ground is a field with many small hay stacks backed by heavy forest. Mountains are faintly visible in background.
