More about Chisos Basin

“Chisos Basin at 5,400 feet is at the end of six miles of road built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. There is lodging, a store and the Chisos Basin Visitor Center, also trailheads including the Window Trail and Lost Mine Trail. The temperature is consistently cooler here and it is a good place to rest and cool off after a hike on the desert floor. There are forests of oaks, pines, junipers, madrones, and Arizona cypress.” – Alice Leese

Matched with a custom handmade and gold-leafed frame by Mike Carroll of 16 Oaks frames in Christoval, Texas, in a design exclusively reserved for Leese. The frame’s curved carving on the inside and outside edges echoes the ever-present movement in Leese’s work.
