Lee's Ferry
Yes I pull out all the stops for our web sites imagery. I know this growing process will be an awesome journey. Our tour of Southern Utah was nothing short of AMAZING! We discovered the Lee's Ferry fort built by John Lee in the early 1870's. We loved the thick walls and barnwood framed window sills, still intact. In March of 1864, Mormon pioneer Jacob Hamblin and his men built a raft at the mouth of the Paria and made the first successful crossing at the point on the Colorado that would become Lees Ferry, transporting all fifteen men, their supplies and horses. Hamblin was on a mission to warn the Navajo of northern Arizona to stop making raids into Utah, stealing livestock and threatening Mormon expansion. The lands into which the pioneers wanted to move was viewed as "unsettled" territory, theirs for the taking under the precepts of Manifest Destiny, despite millennia of native occupation. Over the next few years, the "war" between the natives and the Mormons escalated, with the Paiute beginning to make raids on Anglo settlements as well. In an effort to deflect native threats to their vulnerable southeastern frontier, the Mormons posted guards at the Ute Ford/Crossing of the Fathers and at "Pahreah Crossing" (Lees Ferry) in the winter of 1869-1870. Our prints are offered in Fine Art Hot press Cotton Paper or incredible metallic gloss in a sophisticated 10 color ink systems for the ultimate in fine art reproductions. Our giclee offered on the finest Epsom smooth matt cotton paper, or incredible Epson Metallic Gloss paper.
