Sketchbook 2016

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Sketchbook 2016

This time of the year, the forum a bit slow...still, always a welcoming venue. Mostly TRs about places visited last season - reliving past recent glories...and/or planning for new adventures to come.
Me too.

Last summer, hiking with the OldRanger, we crossed over one last pass, somewhere deep in the Sawtooths...as usual, we were off-trail, and we stopped for a bit just below that final pass - after miles of talus; we had crystal lite snow cones.

There are certain specific places that stand out - in my mind's eye...I paint these from memory. (BTW, the watercolor process - first a value sketch is always made - included).

Humbly, I give you my 2016 sketchbook, starting with my version of Mike's Pass. A few others follow too, some high school sketches done recently including one of Lower Cathedral - this summer a place Mike wants to fish with rafts...just dreaming.

Dang! Where DID you see the elephant?!? I've been looking for one all over the Sierra but never had a glimpse. Saw what I figured had to be footprints one time, but never the actual beast. They must be very shy...
