Shoshone Switchback by Bev Doolittle
Switchback trails climb quickly and steeply, bringing the rider from the valley to the heights in sharp, 180 degree turns. Shoshone Switchback follows a group of riders as they ascend the hill, their path resembling the undulations of a snake, which is another appellation for the Shoshone People (named for their proximity to the Snake River).
Unable to resist the pun, Bev Doolittle incorporated a snake hieroglyphic within the painting to further cement the link.
