This piece depicts a majestic juniper tree perched on a sandstone ridge, found by Ross while hiking Sound of Silence Trail. This trail is on the Utah side of Dinosaur National Monument; a beautiful desert landscape that has eroded over millions of years to reveal fossils of plant and animal life, now home to only the hardiest of life.
