On the West Rim Trail, above Angel's Landing, is a wonderful view of The Great White Throne. During my 2012 stay in Zion National Park as Artist-in-Residence I realized I was seeing the view portrayed by Maynard Dixon in his painting, "High in the Morning," so of course I had to do my own version. I think he made that massive massif skinnier than it really is, whereas I have made it even more massive.
Zion Natural History Association used the 1933 Maynard Dixon painting as the cover of its 2009 centennial volume, A Century of Sanctuary.
