Another in my "wagon" series. This time I used the grandeur of Canyon de Chelly (northern Arizona), to relate the enormous challenge our Fore-Fathers faced by "Heading West".


Some of our hunting area, as viewed from the top of "Baldy". Other landmarks seen are: "Clear Lake Nob" (aka Prudential Rock), "the Gut", Airplane Ridge, "the Burn", South Rawah Peak, "the Crotch", "upper Willow" and "the Basin". The hunter who wanted this painting had got several of his bulls in these areas.

Although the main feature here is "Chimney Rock", I chose to name this after the two less known pinnacles in the background. This was a Christmas present for my wife, the first year I met her.
