Elevation 14,180′

Living in Park City, Utah, I have met Olympians, extreme athletes, and all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts. Back country skiing is common here and many of the folks I meet enjoy the activity. This painting was inspired by a photo from a friend who hiked Mt. Shasta, in California, seeking adventure. I loved the idea of being high above the violet clouds and town below, peering through the mountain terrain.

Rocks and snowmelt are what is going on here in Park City this week.  On my recent trip to Iceland, we were lucky enough to climb up one of the dormant volcanos.  The wind just about blew us off the side of the mountain. This is a view from Mt. Shasta. It is a potentially active volcano at the southern end of the Cascade Range in Siskiyou County, California.  It is the second highest peak in the Cascades and fifth highest in the state.
