Misty Ridge Blacktail

This is a ridgeline that my brother-in-law and I used to hunt regularly during archery season. When clouds would roll in off the Oregon Coast, the ridge would get socked in and everything seemed to get quieter. Although we never got a deer in this spot, it was our regular break spot after a somewhat steep hike. Although there would be deer sign everywhere, the coffee break would take priority. Unfortunately, this property was purchased and is no longer open to hunting and a paved road now leads to this ridge. This painting captures what it was.
