Hiking Christmas Artist

Thought I would try something new and post my yearly Christmas card . For those of you who don't know me , painting is a passion and each year I make my Christmas art and make my own cards . The original is a oil on canvas 16x20 ,

I think I will start posting some more art that reflects this hiker's mood in his travels .

Cerro Alto family life

12-20-11 , on Cerro Alto mountain located on hwy 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero Ca
on a steep climb , the bridge trail , I met this young family , mom dad and two children . It warms my heart to see young folks enjoying the wilderness and sharing with such small kids . This family hiked three
miles , gained 700 ft of elevation and the little girl hiked all the way !!
I later met them in the park lot and judging from their truck and equipment , i am sure this is a way of life for them .I hope to see them again on the trail !!
