For this painting I setup just along the trail, and then of course our mule train with all our gear caught up with me and wanted to pass. I cleared out what I though was enough room, but that last mule in the lineup must have been really curious. He swung over towards me and his pack whacked my pastel box. Luckily I saw him coming and I jumped forward and grabbed my box before the impact. I kept things mostly intact. My box got scrambled and required some cleanup, but only one stick was broken. That could have been a disastrous way to start the trip!
Then the next morning I woke at daybreak and painting this view. What a place to wake up and have my first morning cup of coffee! I think the view woke me more than the caffeine.

Artists on the trip
Bill put together this list of pointers to everyone's website. Thought I'd duplicated it here if you're interested in seeing more work from the trip:
