This is Glacier National Park during the salmon run. The waters literally ran red with salmon and hundreds of eagles blanked the trees on the riverbanks, swooping down en masse to feed on these incredibly powerful fish. Sadly, this awesome spectacle of nature is a thing of the past. Dams on area rivers have decimated the salmon and correspondingly, the numbers of eagles, grizzlies and other predators have diminished.

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
