A large wagon full of loose hay is being pulled up the hill by a team of horses on their way to put the hay in the barn for winter, You can see down into the valley where a huge hay field is full of more hay stacks with another wagon coming up with another load. Some of the women are resting a bit until their turn at helping with the next wagon.
