The scraggly trees in shades of brown surround the mountain tarn. Here Bierstadt set his painting, capturing the tranquil charm. So high up in the sky, like little dots upon a screen, birds fly about the lovely scenery almost unseen. The craggy rocks along the lake, a distant golden hill, this place so isolated, nearly inaccessible, is beautiful precisely for the reason that it is so far out of the way, and rare, like Bierstadt’s canvases.
