The Paiute leader named Tau-gu, revealed in the first segment of this SummerQuest image, is now shown to be standing with his famous acquaintance, John Wesley Powell. Powell explored and surveyed many of the arid lands in the West, and served as the second Director of the United States Geological Survey. He is best known for leading the first known expedition through the Grand Canyon.
