This scene crossing the Steam Boat Hot Springs, took place on a ride, rounding up cattle for the Callahan Ranch one freezing cold morning in January.
The Steamboat Hot Springs lies at the bottom of Mount Rose near Reno. The ground here is a series of crevices that bubble up hot steam and water. Cooked by the fires of hell and cooled in the bright light of a cold Nevada morning.
It was so cold, that four inches off the hot ground, the steam froze and created this erie scene.I hope you enjoy "Hell Freezes Over" as much as I enjoyed being there and painting this scene.
