View from Sequoia National Park Day 396 lo res (2)

There is a name for this series of ranges is Eight Presidents, or something like that.  I can’t remember and I couldn’t find it. This painting is like short hand for the real thing. Describing is difficult,  very pretty isn’t enough. It’s like defining the Sequoias as big. We do what we can. Or maybe we do more. Thomas Moran spent eight years on his painting of the Grand Canyon, the next best thing to being there.
