Comfort foods, hike, watercolors
Sunday, January 20, 2019
I’ve been home sick with a miserable cold for the past few days. Do you have comfort foods that you eat when you are ill? I do. I like soft boiled eggs, soups, hot chocolate, juices and pudding. I guess all of them go down easy when you have a sore throat. (And my mom used to serve these items when we were sick as kids) The weather here has been very stormy, with Highwinds and wet snow. So I don’t miss getting outdoors much. But I am so ready to be over this cold virus!
Here are a couple of photos from my last hike into dry River Canyon. This canyon hike closes for several months in a few days, for raptor nesting. So my friend suggested hiking before it is closed. It is a beautiful and dramatic Canyon in the Badlands.
The trail was very icy in parts.
Finally, I thought I would share a couple of my watercolor paintings. These are landscapes that I did from sketches and photos during my trip to Lake Tahoe. The watercolors are not perfect, but I had a lot of fun painting them.
