Dalegowski at Lees Ferry
When travelling in and around Lees Ferry, it is impossible to miss the mark of human interaction with the landscape. Evidence of human occupation in the area stretches back thousands of years. Ancient petroglyphs and pictographs, pottery shards, and lithic scatters blanket the region. Weathered equipment continues to rest where miners placed it decades ago; as though they intended to return.
Place names whisper reminders of the people who worked and lived in this remote desolate outpost. The Old Arizona Road, and Lee's Ferry; Gateway to Arizona, are names that express the significant role Lees Ferry played in Arizona's history. They tell of the bustle of activity as hundreds of Mormon pioneer families left their Utah homes, and passed through here to settle the Arizona Territory, one of the last wild frontiers in America.
Today, modern roads, scenic viewpoints, and visitor amenities speak to the superlative scenery, and natural and cultural history that draws hundreds of thousands of people to this place every year. The scenes represented in this exhibit were captured in the plein air tradition of artistic interpretation of moment and place. It is in the spirit of place that Glen Canyon National Recreation Area proudly highlights the legacy of Lees Ferry in the Arizona Centennial Celebration through our Artist-in-Residence program.
