What it is about slot canyons that create excite- ment? Perhaps it is the cool air, mystery around the corner, hidden treasures, and potential danger?
These paintings are abstracted and from my imagination. They represent a frontal and/or sky view with a raging river.

Our family tradition is to hike to a waterfall, ford the Oneonta slot canyon, and sit in the mud at Rooster Rock on the Columbia Gorge.
This year we hiked to Ponytail and Horsetail falls again, climbed over the logjam (the kids did, while I painted), and wade in the mighty river (the kids did, while I painted).

My granddaughter saw her first waterfalls, hiked in her new boots, and her favorite…got up to her waist in the river and muddied-up her toes.
This photo expresses her joy!
