HALLETT PEAK
16"x20" Oil Painting
This view of Hallett Peak is from the road to Bear Lake. In modern times you must take a bus to get to the Lake. It is a case where the area has been loved to death and now they are trying to control access to this area. It is a very beautiful area with some great hikes into Loch Vale and west into the lakes immediately below Hallett. Another day or two I should be finished with both this painting as well as the Moraine Park painting.

I love all your stories as much as your paintings. Your work is an important and beautiful way of documenting God's Country.

I just came across your blog and was happy to find your painting with the same title as one of mine, Hallet Peak. I did one long ago as artist in residence at the Park.
