Description
"The Court Group", or, "The Supreme Court Group," was the title given to the popular rock formation now known as "Praying Hands" in the Colorado National Monument. Beam was commissioned by the National Parks Service to document the stretch of parkland that flanked the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad running through the park which had not yet formally opened.
