Overlooking the Sierras

John Muir Trail

Recently finished drawing for a friend of mine.  Her horse named Casche and her travelled through the John Muir trail for several days. Can you imagine? I was speechless as she recounted her story. Then when she showed me the picture of her horse as she stopped at an overlook, it just seemed like a perfect picture to draw from.

For those that know little about John Muir and the impact that he made on our lives, you must read on! 

The John Muir Trail is the premier hiking trail in the United States.The trail starts in America’s treasure, Yosemite National Park, and continues 215 miles through the Ansel Adams Wilderness, Sequoia National Park, King’s Canyon National Park, and ends at the highest peak in continental United States, Mount Whitney at 14,496 ft.

Not only is it a great opportunity to get out in the wild and just enjoy what nature has given us, but it is an absolute treasure! For more information regarding this national treasure, follow this link. Some of the most breath-taking views exist on this trail, such as this mountain sunset…
