Hey Don, I'll be in butte country in mid-October, too. I have a gig at the Petrified Forest, Sept 26 to Oct 9, and then we are off to the Lightning Field Oct. 11. But I am looking for a place to stay and paint after that somewhere in the Colorado Plateau -- near Canyon de Chelly would be perfect. Do you have recommendations that I could check out?
