It was dark with temperatures well below freezing when I arrived from Death Valley at the South Rim. Since I slept in the back of the pickup, I rose at dawn to thaw out and stretch. I drove the rim, excited as a little kid, stopping at every viewpoint, even though I had been here several times in the past and had hiked twice down to the river. When I decided to paint this miniature, it seemed that only a vertical painting could capture the sense of the canyon depth that I had felt at the viewpoints on that trip.
