This woodcut was produced in an edition of 200 for members of The Woodcut Society in Alexandria, Virginia. Walter J. Phillips wrote about this print in the original presentation folder: "The tumbling water had a faint luminosity in that somewhat gloomy setting. I walked to the southern end of the lake to make my sketches…I stopped when Mount Lefroy came into view - its snow-capped peak hidden by a cloud, and felt inspired to make a note of what I saw. The cold draughts from the glaciers were forgotten for an hour, but when I had finished I stood up and shivered so violently that I startled the young mountain sheep that had been looking over my shoulder to see what I was doing."
