Jigger Johnson Campground, Arethusa Falls, and Franconia Falls

This weekend I went camping with my girlfriend and some friends up in the White Mountains. We went up Saturday, set up camp at Jigger Johnson Campground right off the Kancamagus, and hiked Arethusa Falls in the afternoon. It was a cool hike, though I was slightly disappointed by the adjoining Frankenstein Cliffs trail. The view at the end was just about average. Sunday we packed up and on our way out of the areas we hit up the Lincoln Woods trail. It was a nice flat trail that used to be tracks for trains. A couple miles down and it joins up with the Franconia Falls trail, which leads to some awesome waterfalls and swimming holes. It was there that I managed to squeeze in a watercolor.



I only spent about an hour on this sketch, but I felt so confident through the entire process. The process is beginning to feel quite natural. But although I’m enjoying watercolors, I really can’t wait to get back to oils.


Also, I took my early birthday present along and caught some footage of the trip!

My parents decided to spoil me and give me a GoPro. I’m beyond happy.
