orcas island art journal

days 2 and 3, moran state park on orcas island

Every morning, with coffee and art supplies nearby, I wrote down notes on what had happened the day before. Although, I completed two collage pages when on the trip, I am adding more to the art journal along with photos from the trip.


This week I finished pages for days two and three. Day two was spent riding back into town which involved a good elevation climb to get back to camp, so we spent the afternoon relaxing by a campfire.

Day three we hiked the four miles up with nearly a 1500 elevation climb, from the lower camp to Mt. Constitution. The climb up was along a beautiful, wide path and we didn't run into a single person. Coming down, we came a different way, recommended to us by the guide for its views. It was rocky, narrow and steep and my feet and knees were screaming by the time we reached the end. I was amazed at how different the terrain could be depending on which side of the mountain we were on.

wishing everyone a good weekend and joining sunday sketches
