Thunder Mountain Mystery is my impressionist style watercolor painting of a stream on the mountainside of Thunder Mountain, Ontario, Canada. I camped there for ten days and did a vision quest not far from this spot.It was a very difficult place to pitch a tent as there was just a thin layer of earth over the rock which was a major portion of the mountain.I didn't have the option of looking for a better place so I resorted to finding rocks as large as I could carry and putting them in my tent to anchor it! Small streams such as this trickle down the mountain and wild blueberries were in abundance (really made not eating for four days during the vision quest that much more difficult!) Luckily we had no run ins with the larger wildlife in the area - especially the moose - though I would have liked to see one.The Thunderbeings are said to be inside the mountain and small sized quartz (I believe) egg-shaped rocks are embedded in the rock banks along this stream.They are said( by the stories told to us from the local Ojibwa) to be the eggs of the Thunderbeings. On my first trip here prior to the vision quest I had stopped at this spot to rest and meditate sitting on a rock outcropping in the middle of the stream. When I was finished and turned to stand I saw one of the eggs sitting next to the hole it had been in.A gift from the Thunderbeings.I later I returned with friends and our Cree medicine man for the vision quest and spent time with some of the Ojibwa who helped support us.Whatever you believe ,you can hear noises -like groans,coming from what sounds to be inside the mountain as you lay on the ground. Every time I look at this painting I am reminded of the struggles I went through to get to this beautiful place, and how uplifting and rejuvenating the entire experience was!
