The High Sierras
oil on canvas

   This is a warm and dry version of the first one I did from this location. I was a little south of Lone Pine last weekend for a family reunion. My dad and his siblings were born there in Lone Pine way back in the early 30's. My great great grandfather was John Baxter. Baxter Pass, Baxter Lake, and Baxter Mountain were all named after him. His cattle and honey ranch is still in working order today. My cousin David Baxter runs the show up there on the ranch now.
