View of South Table Mountain from the Arapahoe Bar site.

Arapahoe City - November 29, 1858

View of South Table Mountain, looking southwest from the Arapahoe Bar site.  Clear Creek (not visible) lies between the grassy area in the foreground and the base of South Table Mountain, after emerging from the canyon (behind the smokestacks on the right).  George Jackson and John Gregory followed the streambed west into the canyon after leaving Arapahoe Bar.
