Far removed from any major metropolis, Oregon's Wallowa Mountains have long been a Lyman family favorite. Steve would often take family trips there with his sister Shauna, and brother Scott. "As I camped by this lake years ago, I awoke in the morning to watch the crest of the ridge catch fire with the golden light of sunrise," Stephen said describing the inspiration for the painting.

“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.
