We were at The View hotel for 5 nights in the middle of March, just before the tourist season started. The weather was extreme, it was sunny and warm one day, super windy another and the last day we had a white out. The snow didn't stick to the ground though, this was the view from our balcony.
Benny our guide, he took us around to meet his family and friends that lived in the canyons.

Scott's drawing he did on the spot in this man's bedroom. The room was too small for me to also paint. It was his 80th birthday that day and his family was preparing a party for him in the next room.

Scott met this lady in the summer of 2011, Benny took Scott around and because of the photos he took I really wanted to see the area. Scott submitted this painting and the painting below to the Prix de West show at the Cowboy Hall of Fame 2012

This man had just gotten back from a long hike to find coyotes. He walks for long distances every day. He gave Scott an old Stone Axe head that he found in an Anasazi ruin.
