Stanley CreekWednesday, October 06, 2010 by Steve Hill
Filed under: Travel
The Stanley Basin of central Idaho is surrounded by the infamous Sawtooth Mountains Wilderness, the largest primitive wilderness area in the continental United States (@754,000 acres). This waterway flowing through the valley and aptly named “Stanley Creek” made a sinuous journey towards its namesake lake, about 6 miles downstream from here.

If there's a signature logo for the farmlands in this paradise, it's the log rail fences that make perfect harmonic divisions of space across grand expanses of meadows, now illuminated in the orange/yellow colors of autumn grasses and olive green sages. The quiet here is deafening and I could hear the water running in the creek about a half mile away, far below my perch.

Hi Steve, "Stanley Creek October Afternoon" is truly a lovely piece. There is something to returning to one's native soil isn't there...... May your journey continue with as much heart....... Aurore

Steve, your website is great (what beautiful paintings!) and it was fun to read the entries from each of your stops. Thanks for making the Stanley Basin one of them. Good luck with the rest of your trip!
