In 2017 Robert Treat was given a grant from the Volcan Mountain Foundation to photograph the Volcan mountain range. Rising 5,700 feet, Volcan Mountain (common term is the dominant scenic feature for a significant portion of San Diego’s backcountry and is visible from the Pacific coastline 60 miles away. It is the headwaters for four major watersheds, including the San Dieguito and San Diego watersheds flowing to the Pacific Ocean. Treat says of the project: “I have found Volcan Mountain to hold a wonderful mystique and quietness within its wildlands. In this project I’ve explored this mystery and solitude by photographing its regions that are normally not open to the public”.
Admission is free. The public is invited.
