Deep Springs College, California

Deep Springs College is on the border of Nevada and California near Bishop, CA.

I taught painting there in 1995. Its a great place. They study Melville and Nietzsche in the desert.

I brought a painting (above) for them to have there at the school, and they were glad to have it. I am usually offered a nice meal and a place to refresh my horses, there in on the edge-- of the middle, of the desert .

I came across the last ridge of mountains and it was 113' I was too worn out to paint but took a film of the road winding down the hill into Deep Springs Valley.

The Sierra looms up behind the Glass Mts, and is still after all these years--quite a sight. Californ--ia!
