In the fall of 1870, when working for Scribner’s Monthly in New York, Moran was asked to make sketches for the first scientific expedition to a place called Yellowstone. His lithographs contributed to its establishment as our first national park. Moran’s last train stop before returning east was Green River, Wyoming, a newly established town with a landscape of fantastic rock formations and colors. He would return to the location again and again.
