This painting was done at the portal or entry into to Mount Whitney. At 14,505 feet it is the highest mountain in the “lower 48” states. Susan and I were on a painting trip to the Sierras. On the way home we ventured toward Mt. Whitney. This big boy is one of the lower mountains that flank Whitney which can only be seen further up the trail. It was probably mid May when we stayed there. I was struck by how the melting snow provide definition and articulation to the mountain’s high craigs. I had read the history of the area and could not stop thinking about the first people to summit Mt Whitney in 1873. The high and rugged granite mountains leading to Whitney are just the tease. The early explorers certainly had to pass in through this portal. They would have had to be on horseback for part of the journey. Where we stood, I could not stop thinking about how much further they had to go to reach Whitney’s summit.. This painting toasts the brave who out of a certain curiosity and determination, possess the wherewithal to explore these “off the beaten track” places for the rest of us.
