13.75" x 17.5" framed. "A little way west of Green River, Utah is one of the most amazing rock formations in the state – the San Rafael Reef. This starkly uplifted ridge of sandstone stretches north to south for over a hundred miles, and it is thoroughly riven by cracks and slot canyons. It also catches the first light of day in spectacular fashion. Interstate 70 passes through this wall of stone, and so whenever I journey west on the highway I make some time to stop and explore a little. On this particular day I was fortunate to catch the Reef just at dawn, and I was just amazed by the play of shadows across this fractured ridge. It occurred to me that an alternate title for this piece could be 'Light on Crack.'" - Stephen C. Datz
