Hike and Sketch: Fortini Trail, San Jose

Sunday, March 27, 2016

Several weeks ago, M. and I enjoyed a hike, picnic, and sketch excursion with artist Suhita Shirodkar and her family. It was fun to see the other part of the park that is right behind our back yard. At certain times we couldn't see anything except trees, the trail, and green hills all around us (and power lines, of course). It was nearly like being in Ireland.

Bonus: M. found a deer skull as we were hiking back to the parking lot. Will have to clean it up a bit before we decide whether to display it.

Here's Suhita's account of the day.

  2. How great that you had a sketching buddy to hike with. Nice!!! I'll be waiting to see deer skull sketches.
