I do not think that this photo accurately shows the elevation. This Rock is about 300'- 400' above the valley, with almost a straight drop just a few feet behind me. I needed the 4WD to get up here, but it was worth it. I think that I can understand why Mohawks wiped out the first and second English settlements that moved into this area in the mid to late sixteen hundreds. It is just lush and beautiful !

I still do not have a grip on my "plein-aire" pallet. My personal sense of scale needs to be reeled in, but not crushed, and that said, I just got here and need to be gentle with myself.
I am just seduced by the green...I may need to leave the green paint out of the paint bag for a day or two!
I said I would share it all.
