Postcards from the Enchantments / by Bethann Wilson

 

My friends and family are probably sick of hearing me talk about this project but I am very proud of it and think that our experience can help others to pursue their passions and make their dreams come true.

About a year ago my husband, who is an avid backpacker, outdoorsmen, and wilderness guide, decided to get a few friends together to travel to an area in Washington State called The Enchantments.  I am in the process of putting together a book about the trip and how we were able to make it happen with the help of our friends and family and the magic of crowdfunding.

In the meantime I would like to share with you the images of the little watercolor paintings that were made by me over the course of five days while camping in The Enchantments.
