“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
― Pablo Picasso
The Gros Ventre Tribe originated in Canada and migrated south into Montana. Some continued on south to Wyoming. Their name is pronounced “grow-vahnt “ which may mean “big belly.” We aren’t sure why the French called them this.
All of this being said, my photo has nothing to do with the Tribe, but shows an area along the Gros Ventre River in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park which bears their name. I’ve always thought, looking out over these hills and trees under fresh snow, that the scene looked like a painting.
