It was a warm summer afternoon in 1974 when I painted the General Store in the town of Clio, located at 5000 feet elevation in the forests of Plumas County, California. This little village only had a dozen or so homes and was so quiet one could only hear the buzzing insects and grasshoppers flitting among the dried weeds in the hot sun. The Clio store carried basic grocery supplies and had a gas pump. When I went in to buy a cold drink, I noted they also had fishing supplies.

As I painted I could hear the shouts of some young boys playing down by the creek. I had driven by them as I came into town. There was a tree high on an embankment leaning over the water. They were swinging from a rope tied to the branch and dropping into a deep pool of water below. Early Tarzan training. It looked like fun.
