Chapin Mesa Thunderhead

Artist: James Lynxwiler


Chapin Mesa is home to Cliff Palace, the largest cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park and in all of North America. Formed in nature’s complexion and transcending time, Cliff House remains an enduring symbol of the Ancient Puebloan’s devotion to community, family, and culture. The expansive thunderhead over Chapin Mesa forms a compositional juxtaposition to foreshadow the impending collision between land and sky, and temporary relief for a thirsting landscape.
