On Etsy since 2018

↟ Backpacking and a tiny art kit ↟

I think it's fair to say that I'm hooked on long distance hiking. I wanted to combine art and hiking since the very start of my obsession, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. I carried a small tupperware container with some art supplies, then ditched it halfway through to save weight, after using it zero times. While hiking the Colorado Trail the year after, I carried a mint tin with watercolors, and painted twice!

This year (2018) I hiked the Appalachian Trail and I FINALLY REALLY DID IT! I carried a tiny watercolor palette, some pens, and a stack of small papers that miraculously survived 5 and a half months of record breaking rain and a canoe trip down the Shenandoah river. My Etsy shop is mostly the collected works from this project, and is the start of a long, fulfilling relationship with painting and backpacking. Thanks for stopping by!

Isn't fern spelled fern?

It is! I found and liked the word "firnmirror" in an avalanche safety book.
