SteveC has it.

"Hospital Rock in Sequoia NP was the site of several convalesences for injured early settlers

Hospital Rock was once home to 500 Potwisha Native Americans. Archaeological evidence shows settlement as early as 1350, and bedrock mortar sites and petroglyphs remain.
The Native Americans mostly used this site in the winter months.
In 1860, Hale Tharp and his brother-in-law, John Swanson, were exploring the Giant Forest when Swanson sustained an injury to his leg. Swanson was transported to the locale where the injury was treated by local Indians.
Hale Tharp gave the spot its name after a second similar incident. In 1873, James Everton recovered from a gunshot wound at the site. He had been injured by a shotgun snare set to trap bear.


Details here.

I get the facepalm, but how do you square your answer with this?

Oh. SO for this one, just identifying the place is the answer?

  The picture / terrain / vegetation looks like it is not in North America.

Are those Eucalyptus trees?

Yes, those are non-native Eucalyptus trees, and they are central to the story...

I don't see an answer to the time frame question here. Need to ask a better grade of question.

saltydog: Did the event occur before or after the Civil War was declared?

Reminds me of the well-known chipmunks line: Aaaalllviiin!

On Monday, the conversation went:
"What do you think you were doing out there?"

"I was selling airplanes," was the answer.

Other versions of that picture:

Big rills, rilly big rills. No gold, unless you count the 10 parts per quadrillion in seawater.
