From a trail halfway up the mountain (Mt. Werner).
This one was a little more taxing for me. The previous ones, I basically just drove to a place, parked, and walked <50 yards to my painting spot. This one I had to hike about 20 mins with a pretty taxing load on my back and in my hands/arms (for me). Add to that a significant vertical gain. (huff, puff)
I’m just starting to learn from my plein air experiences and not easily mobile with all my painting gear in tow. I’m not packing my necessities very efficiently to allow me to comfortably hike with all my supplies. So much different than just plain hiking. :) (Hmmmmm, workout and painting all in one.)
