When you're in the middle of the mountain, brooding alone. Finally, you will realize that there are only two choices, you're able to resolve it or go home, turn around and go back.

I believe in the power of art to make us fall in love. In love with animals, landscapes, causes. You see, taking the time to capture something through paint, pen, sculpture, music, or words not only asks others to see the world differently, it indicates that said thing is worth laboring over. So if this pika is meaningful to me, maybe it can be meaningful to all of you. ✨This cute little guy is part of @charles_post and my book we’re writing for @keen !! Through Charles’ words and my paintings, we will create a “guide” to Glacier National Park, with the landscapes, animals, and plants that make it such a special place. And among many topics, we will discuss how the pika is an indicator species for climate change, because as temperatures rise they are forced into the mountains to find that perfect place that’s not to hot or too cold, in order to survive. In a warming climate, those places are becoming few and far between. ✨ We are grateful for the opportunity to share some ecology and conservation stories that make this wild corner of the earth unlike any other. And we look forward to sharing updates as we chip away at the book!✨ I hope you enjoy this time lapse of me watercoloring in my pika pen drawing that I did yesterday! I hope you fall in love with this cute fellow, I recommend googling the pika if you need a moment to just smile today 🙂✨ #rachelpohlart
we were supposed to be camping up Apgar tonight, but due to some technical- the ski boots I borrowed didn’t come close to fitting- difficulties, ended up making bison burgers and playing Cranium with the gang. camping would’ve been great, but honestly, I can camp whenever at home. some of my pals out here I might not see again for months, and there’s something important about realizing that. we yelled at each other, argued over rules, laughed a lot. team canada lost. I couldn’t draw pearl jam which might’ve cost us a maple leaf victory. getting home tomorrow, with a whole new ski touring set-up awaiting me, that means my hut season starts now. I’ll be the guy lugging in Catan to a backcountry oasis near you.
