As we were driving in the Brooks Range on the Haul Road north of Coldfoot and Wiseman,
came into view.
It is Sukakpak Mountain.
Really a magnificent geologic formation. It was a fabulous day, luckily and as it turns out, the best day we had for this stay in the Brooks Range.
We drove along and found a good spot to paint
on a gravel bar of the Middle Fork Koyukuk River.
This is the thumbnail sketch for the painting:
Matt got some shots of me painting with a bug-shirt on.
The skeeters weren't very pleasant.
And this is the plein-air painting that happened ... about an hour's effort.
