Chilkoot Mountain /

Canadian History Magazine featured a story by an author who hiked the historic Chilkoot Trail. During the hike she discovered a beautiful & historic area, rediscovered a connection to her grandfather as her relationship with her husband faltered. The missive involved a deep personal interplay between the author, her grandfather/heritage & her husband — all playing off each other. This, of course, became the backbone of the concept for the illustration, weaving the 3 figures into the mountain range itself.
