Illustration Friday: Trail

In 2002 I hiked alone in Yellowstone National Park which was not recommended in every book I read on the subject. The impression I had going into the park was that at every corner I was going to be beaten by a bear or eaten by a bear. Since I took a lot of precautions I found it to be quite safe. I made this little comic in my sketchbook journal to poke fun at my fear. Sorry about the quality of the scans, I don't have time to rescan the originals.


The following sketches were done while on the trail in Wyoming, Arizona, and Utah. Descriptions are below each sketch.
Taking a nap at the Weaver's Needle. Superstition Mountains, AZ.

Picacho Peak, AZ.

Devil's Tower, WY. The local Indians tie colored ribbons to the trees around Devil's Tower. They also leave unlit cigarettes as offerings (I guess).
