I take an annual trip (or semi-annual recently) to the Kern River with some friends. It's one of my favorite places in California and I look forward to it every year. This time I did something different. I usually take the trip and leave any sketching/drawing tools at home. Get away from it all and just get out and enjoy nature. But this time I decided to bring along my pastels. Which was a blast. I found it very relaxing and calming to stop for an hour or so and just take in the view. The spot we camp at has this incredible view of a mountain range known as "The Needles". I tried to do a couple studies at different times of the day.
