This is one of those paintings that holds far more than meets the eye. These are the Swede Mountains that I rode horses all over when I was 12 years old. There is a look-out-tower at the top. My friends would lend me a horse for the day and off we went, bare back, to see if we could get there. This mountain range continues off to the left, and stretches out for miles.
This pasture is the one that my brothers and I used to cross to go fishing. Libby creek is just behind the tall stand of trees. When I went back to my grandmother's old house last month I also went to the neighbor's house across the road (Paul and Virginia Miller). They were gracious and took me back behind their property where I saw this view and the floods of summer memories poured out again. I had to hold back the tears as I thanked them for including us in so many camping trips, berry picking adventures, and wonderful hikes up in the Rockies.
