While planning and working on this painting, I envisioned being on a nature trail, several hundred feet above the water level, that completely surrounds the lake. The trail would have been formed over many years by explorers, hikers, wildlife etc. and just about anyone looking for a little adventure and excitement while enjoying the amazing views from anywhere along the trail. The season is early spring, all of the plant life is beginning to show new color and there is a cool breeze from the mountains. All working together to enhance the exhilarating experience.
