This is my favorite swimming hole. I spent a couple of summers just floating around there in an inflatable armchair with a drink and a good book. What a life of luxury! It’s partially surrounded by a cliff, which is another of my favorite rocks. My dog used to bark like mad whenever I went into a lake, but she was OK with this place because she could keep track of me. Haven’t done any floating this summer and I don’t know why.
This is Frazier Falls at the end of August when the flow of water is minimal. In May it’s a raging torrent, but it is sometimes hard to get there because the snow may still be fairly deep at that elevation. This is a very quick sketch done with Pitt markers. Note the people at the top, where the rocks are pretty much flat and one can climb around on them and even take a sunbath. I would say those are some of my “favorite rocks”, but I have others too.
