ICICLE RIVER HIKE

ICICLE RIVER JUST PAST LEAVENWORTH

I feel at home painting these waters... I grew up fishing and panning for gold in this area... wonderful memories... we'd catch good-size rainbow trout... clean them, build a camp fire, cook and eat them as the sun went down and then roast marshmallows... the good old days! I love sitting beside the creek daydreaming about those good 'ol days when life was carefree and simple. I am striving to capture the nuance of sunlight filtering through the trees, outlining rocks and turning the fall leaves into bits of fire! And to capture the motion of tumbling water as it cascades over multi-colored rocks, sculpted by centuries of whitewater ...
