This is a studio piece done of one of my favorite locations in the Wild Rivers National Monument, at the base of Chieflo Trail. It is a difficult trail, one I travel down once or twice a year. During those time I always try to do a small painting and to take lots of photos. Wild Rivers is part of the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument and about 5 miles west of Questa, NM.
This painting was also reproduced as a light post banner that now hangs in front of the Chow Chart in Taos, NM
