Little Naches River

September 12th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This weekend we rode our bikes over Chinook Pass, about 5200 feet above sea level. From there we flew down the mountain (on our bikes) and stopped at Whistling Jack’s Lodge, founded in 1931. Now a Whistling Jack is actually a hoary marmot, and they live in that high altitude area.

One of our friends that rode with us actually saw one. Believe me, I was jealous.
Meanwhile, before dinner, I had exactly 30 minutes to sketch. So I sat down next to the river behind our cabin and was captivated by this tree stump. So I tried to draw it..

    This sketch reminds me of summer vacations (which we always spent part of in the mountains). I’m always amazed at how much sense of place can be evoked by black and white sketches.
