Appalachian

This is the online version of the April 2015 art show premiering new works by Suzanne Shelden. These paintings capture views from the mountaintops and from deep in the woods, and along the roads and ways of the Appalachian Mountains. With it, we resurrect many fond memories of time spent with friends, hiking, talking, and exploring, together. My Appalachian Journey begins with a summer camp, and it grows in to a love of the mountains.

I have hiked (like a turtle) the huts of the Presidential Range in both directions. I would love to share this experience with my children one day. I am off and on a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) which runs the huts on the mountains. This hike from hut to hut is one of the premier hikes along the Appalachian trail, and it was a huge experience for my friend, Mary, and I, and our friends. The huts are situated above treeline and to get to know them and their history, you just have to go there and hear about it from the hut crews.

While staying at Lakes of the Clouds Hut, I got up in time to see the sun rise over Mount Washington and I think I got really lucky. The wind was blowing in from the west, but the clouds were being blown toward the west by an upper current going in the other direction. The result, as far as I can describe it, is a cloud dome and I tried to capture it photographically, and here in this big painting, I am trying to show how the clouds are moving swiftly over the mountain and down the slopes. The sun peers through dramatically.

In August, I am wearing a sweater and wind vest, the wind is at least 30 miles an hour and it's pretty cool. Last night we hiked up Mount Monroe and these are the same clouds that are continuing the amazing show from last night. We will hike up the mountain today. Those are the cairns marking the trail along the ridge. Once up there, we can see Tuckerman's Ravine. At the very top of the mountain, in the image, you can see the poles for the weather station poking up in to the blue sky, above the clouds.

Quoted from the AMC White Mountain Guide: "The Crawford Path continues along the edge of the precipice that forms the northwest wall of Oakes Gulf, then follows a relocated section, passing an area that has been closed to public entry to preserve an endangered species of plant. The area between the two ends of the Mount Monroe Loop is one of great botanical importance and fragility. To protect this area, the most scrupulous care is required on the part of visitors. The Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail diverges left at the corner of the hut, and in another 30 yards the Dry River Trail diverges right. The Crawford Path crosses the outlet of the larger lake an passes between it and the second lake, where the Camel Trail to Boott Spur and the Tuckerman Crossover to Tuckerman Ravine diverge right. The Path then ascends gradually, always some distance below (northwest) the crest of the ridge. The Davis Path, which follows..."

This is part of the Appalachian series. White Oak Canyon of Shenandoah National Park is one of my favorite hikes. This is an amazing waterfall and this painting is a compilation of several photos of the falls.
