Bits and Pieces from Yellowstone and Grand Teton

I found sketches here and there in my travel sketchbooks that didn’t end up as a part of my Yellowstone and Grand Teton narrative. So here they are, a motley crew of images…

It seemed appropriate to sketch the sky in Big Sky, Montana, with Lone Mountain in the distance.

Also big in Big Sky: the cars. So many jeeps and trucks.

I’ve never seen a hydrant with one of these long flags sticking out of it. I want to look it up but I don’t know what the flag like thing is called. I’m guessing it’s so there’s some way to figure where the hydrant is even when it snows a fair bit?

Two quick sketches from the Natural History Museum of Utah in Salt Lake City. I’ve visited this museum every time we pass through Salt Lake City. I love everything about it.

I was too tired to figure the name of this building, right behind the Temple in downtown Salt Lake.

The week I came back, I missed the mountains, so I used a photo to do this little sketch:

Now I’m truly done with my summer travel sketches, which is a bit of a bummer: blogging them somehow extends the holiday experience.

  1. So glad you decided to share these final sketches with us, and also include the links to previous posts, many of which I missed.

    THe flag alerts the presence of the hydrant when the snow is deep. There is one on the hydrant at the end of our driveway. I have loved your sketches and paintings, they bring back such great memories and are a source of inspiration. Many thanks.
