The tallest mountain in North America with no trees at all - isn't that a fun claim to fame our local Rattlesnake Mountain holds. This painting was based on a photo I took from the south across from the Yakima River - and high atop another curving peak in the Horse Heaven Hills near Kiona. It looks down onto the hamlet of Benton City. A very steep climb, it affords a most beautiful view. The terrain off to the south is very level from this topmost vantage point. I've not attempted to paint up there as I'd expect it to be quite windy at all times.
