This great charcoal drawing comes from artist and photographer Davis Gerber. He was inspired by the image of the men in the 1920s building (and blasting) the road that is now the Canyon Road and part of Highway 7.

He adds, “Who knows maybe I’ll head up there and bring an entire art show with me! That would be something else!”

We certainly hope you do!  To see more of Mr. Gerber’s work, just click HERE.
