McEntee spent most of his time in Rondout, New York, and New York City, traveling to Europe in 1868-9. In 1874, McEntee visited Vermont for the first time where he created landscape sketches from which he produced numerous paintings. A few days prior to his trip to Vermont, he recorded in his diary, “At Kaatskill we accidentally met [Frederick] Church who persuaded us to abandon the mountains and go to Clarendon Springs Vermont and as I really wanted to go to a new place we consented, had our baggage taken off the coach and went over to his house to pass the night... The next day we went to Clarendon Springs.”
