Ode to Thomas Moran

Thomas Moran (1837-1926), convinced the U.S. Congress to create our first National Park, Yellowstone, in 1872, by showing them his sketches, watercolors and oversize oil paintings of the grandure of this virtually-unknown-by-white-men-at-the-time corner of the West. Thanks to him, the rivers, waterfalls, geysers, mudpots, lakes, mountains, forests, and animals have been largely preserved. This view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone was one of his favorite subjects; I hope my own version would not displease him.
