My favorite pack ... Ms. Kelty (Done!)


This is my final drawing. Gosh, that was a lot of fun to draw! Creating art is a great way to memorialize something or someone, isn't it? As I look at my drawing, I remember all those times I've thrown, uh, dropped my pack over a barbed wire fence, used it as a pillow while sleeping in a cave with bats flying about, plopped it in unidentifiable but pretty smelly goop, practically submerged it in the bogs of Maui, and filled it to its max with cool plant specimens. Yes, it's my reliable Ms. Kelty.

LOL. Yes Jennifer. It should look awfully familiar! When are we going hiking (for fun) again?
