Telling the story of the places I’ve traveled hiking through art

Franconia Ridge is widely considered the most beautiful place on the Appalachian Trail. The first time I hiked across it heading south on my thru hike I had this grand idea to get the ultimate experience, and catch the entire section during sunset. Why not try and take the most beautiful view to the next level I thought. Approaching the mountain leading up I could see that not only was I missing sunset, but I was heading into the clouds. With nothing but a tiny flashlight to light my way across the ridge, I may have missed the view, but still felt I wound up with a different kind of ultimate experience running through the dark and the cloud on an exposed ridge. The second time I hiked this section I got lucky with weather, as it can be so fickle in the White Mountains, and I finally got that view I first sought out. This painting represents that second experience, basking in the sun, and running across the ridge to its highest point Mt Lafayette.
