Barbara Buhler Lynes, Georgia O'Keeffe: Catalogue Raisonné, vol. II, New Haven, Connecticut, 1999, no. 1001, p. 632, illustrated

“At the Ranch house there is a strong handmade ladder to the roof and when I first lived there I climbed it several times a day to look at the world all ‘round—the miles of cliff behind, the wide line of low mountain with a higher narrow flat top. It is very beautiful—tree-covered with a bare spot in the shape of a leaping deer near the top”


- Georgia O'Keeffe quoted in Georgia O’Keeffe: A Studio Book, New York, 1976, n.p.
