Afternoon Hike

A little artistic liberty on the positioning of things in this painting, but anyone who has hiked around near the summit of the Going-to the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park (Logan Pass) will recognize this prominent peak. If you look closely, you can see a lone hiker enjoying a beautiful summer’s day as he heads away over the crest of the trail. Wildlife, wildflowers, and wild tourists abound in this part of the park.

Early Sunday Morning Heading East

From my years of driving trucks, I’ve seen this view from my windshield a thousand times. This particular scene is in Northwestern North Dakota…perhaps Highway 5 nearing the small town of Crosby. The sun is coming up and everything seems to be heading that direction in the linear geography of the upper great plains. There is beauty in it’s quietness. By the way, some of my titles are meant to honor artist’s who I have always admired, by using the title of one of their paintings in my own title. This one for Edward Hopper, but you’ll have to guess which painting.

Pilot and Index and Approaching Storm

Pilot and Index peaks in Wyoming, near Cooke City, MT. The Cooke City to East Rosebud trail comes through this area. When my two sons were each in their twenties, they made me hike this 26 mile trail with them “backwards”, from East Rosebud lake to the Cooke City side. It’s almost all uphill going that way. Thought it was going to kill me!
