This time, I sketched on a break while mountain biking - a faster exercise than hiking, so one misses details. But equally strenuous and energizing. Plus, I did a near rock-climb in cycling shoes, just to see if there was anything to sketch up on top - nope, just a big view and no injuries.
My last break in the shade of a huge granite boulder looked grim, until I moved to my right. Voila!
