In the sparsely populated and expansive landscape of the northern Navajo Reservation one can often see storms in the distance as sheets of dark rain, lit up with powerful flashes of lightning. Over millenia, the headwaters of the Chuska Mountains formed Canyon De Chelly near R.C.'s childhood home. Still the runoff from these seasonal thunderstorms and snowmelt generate more than half of the surface water for the Navajo Nation. 


Chuska Storm is a part of the Anniversary Suite (6 10.5x13.5 lithographs) which includes also Acomita, Delfina, Madrid, Summer, & Windsong.
