About this Piece
The companion pieces “Lonely Trail” and “Off We Go!” draw upon the spirit of some of my
experiences in the Great Plains of eastern New Mexico and western Texas. This region’s
grandeur and big skies are inspiring, though its isolation adds a somber feeling.
With its broad melodies that gradually unfold, “Lonely Trail” conveys a mood of melancholy reflection on the beauty and remoteness of this land.
